Becoming a Leader

Pomona students are driven, motivated and passionate about using their talents to the fullest extent, and Pomona College is equally driven to provide opportunities for our students to gain the leadership skills that will help them after they graduate.

Pomona graduates have gone on to prominent leadership roles in many fields and sectors, including but not limited to politics, academia, non-profit, technology, medicine and more.

Pomona offers students with a variety of opportunities to develop their leadership skills in the areas of student government, student-run groups, residence hall and sponsors, outdoor education, academic research, community service projects, peer counseling, on-campus jobs and off-campus internships – and much more.

At Pomona, leadership is about being socially responsible. It’s accessible to anyone. It’s a path, not a position.
