Setters Leadership Initiatives

Setters Leadership Initiatives are all the programs designed to enhance the leadership development process. Our current programs, the Setters Leadership Program (SLP), Setters Leadership and Service House (SLH), Pace Makes A Difference Day (PMADD), Fall Leadership Conference (FLC), Women's Leadership Conference (WLC), and Omicron Delta Kappa (ODK) attribute to this development in very diverse ways, but all allow students to reach a common goal: becoming a better leader and advocate for their respective communities.

The Setters Leadership Program is a premiere, three-tiered program specific to the Pace University Pleasantville campus. Students in this program attend several workshops and seminars specifically targeted to developing leaders.

The Setters Leadership and Service House is specific to first-year students at Pace University's Pleasantville campus. These students live in the same residential building, participate in community service work, and attend leadership workshops to learn how to become better advocates for leadership in their communities.

Leadership Benefits

Leadership is one of the most influential elements of governments, organizations, and businesses. Leadership training provides leaders with the tools, knowledge, and ability to impact and inspire their followers. Leadership development provides individuals with the opportunity to sharpen their leadership skills and share their personal experience with other leaders to mature in their effectiveness, and they produce leaders that are able to lead with confidence and ease.

"Your life is the sum result of all the choices you make, both consciously and unconsciously. If you can control the process of choosing, you can take control of all aspects of your life. You can find the freedom that comes from being in charge of yourself." - Robert F. Bennett
