One of the primary goals of College Ten is to help students actively engage in the college community and build leadership skills that reflect our theme of "Social Justice & Community". To formally recognize leadership contributions and experiences, the Social Justice & Community Leadership Certificate is presented at commencement for qualifying graduates. This is a tangible honor that can be highlighted in your resume and graduate school applications. It is available to all College Ten affiliates, regardless of whether you entered College Ten as a first year or as a transfer student.

The College Ten Social Justice & Community Leadership Certificate is awarded to students who engaged in consistent and sustained leadership linked to the theme during their time at College Ten. Please fill out the College Nine Leadership Journal [Google Form / Google Doc] to nominate yourself for the Leadership Certificate. If you do not qualify for the Leadership Certificate, you may still qualify for a College Ten Service Award recognizing significant student leadership on our campus and at our college. We encourage you to fill out this form even if you are unsure if you qualify and we will follow up with you. If you have any questions please contact Erin Ramsden at eramsden@ucsc.edu.

The Leadership Journal must be received by Week 5 of the quarter you are planning to graduate to be eligible for the full honor. If you are graduating in Spring or Summer 2020: Please complete the following form to determine your eligibility by Friday, May 15, 2020.
