Leadership EDGE Program

The SF State Lam Family College of Business Leadership EDGE is a co-curricular engagement program designed to help students find and participate in college activities occurring virtually and on campus! The purpose of the Leadership EDGE program is to provide students with opportunities and experiences to help them grow to their full potential.

1. Suitable: Students earn points for activities, event attendance, and accomplishments at varying levels. These activities help students be a contributor and a leader in their future work environment.

2. Student Ambassadors Program: Students train in leadership, where they encourage one another to engage in the competency development program. They participate in student orientation to welcome new students to the LFCoB.  They plan, execute, and attend Student Engagement events.

For Event Organizers

If you know of an out-of-class activity or event that would help our students succeed, you can request for it to be added to the Leadership EDGE platform. We want to let students know about these opportunities, and we ask for your help in entering events.

When should I enter upcoming events?

  • Add student events now, or as soon as they are confirmed!
  • The goal is to use the Leadership EDGE app as the place to go to see what events are happening in the Lam Family College of Business.
