Bengal Stripes Leadership Program

Bengal Stripes Leadership Program

Starting in Spring 2023, the Bengal Stripes Leadership Program (BSLP) will consist of experience-based education, training, and development opportunities. The Bengal Stripes Leadership Program seeks to prepare students and develop the essential skills necessary to be personally, professionally, and academically successful at Buffalo State College and beyond. The program is free and open to all Buffalo State students. Participants will track their progress using the Bengal Connect paths feature.

The program will include group projects and community building activities to help students to create long-lasting connections with their peers, increasing students’ sense of belonging to Buffalo State College.

Students that have completed all program requirements will be honored at the Dean of Students annual Bengal Banquet and earn the certificate of recognition in student leadership. The certificate of recognition is non-credit bearing.
