“Advocacy. Leadership. Opportunity.” Began as the name to our 2019-2020 Lehman College Student Government Association slate name. We had to consider what our goals were if we were to win the SGA presidency, and what we stood for. A lot of fancy inflated words were scrawled out on a legal pad in those early days of planning. We chose three concepts that meant most to us.
A deep desire to be advocates for others; the ability to lead through our own experience- successes and failures alike; and the understanding that opportunity is given when an opportunity is sought.
As our small cohort grew to eight student leaders, we realized that when passionate and motivated people come together to share in a vision and common goal, anything is possible.
To promote, showcase and advance ALO fellow initiatives. of which the core beliefs are centered on advocating for student rights, promoting leadership through experience and example, and continuously seeking opportunity for students.
