Crimson Leadership Association

The Crimson Leadership Association (CLA) of the Student Government Association (SGA) was established in 2011.  CLA is a program intended for first year students to learn about SGA's structure and functions.  CLA also connects students to campus resources needed to create a meaningful experience for their time in SGA.   


CLA will have oportunities to focus on different topics regarding the SGA and on campus involvement.  Students will hear from various student and administrative leaders to discuss leadership and adapting to student life at OU.  Students will also be partnered with a mentor chosen from select CLA alumni to gain personalized advice from students with unique experiences.  CLA is also an exciting opportunity to bond with other first-year students who have a range of interests and backgrounds, but share a desire to make the most of their time at OU. 
FOR MORE INFORMATION, please contact

An application for the CLA is waiting for you to start!  Please go through the SGA General Application on ENGAGE Membership is determined through an application and interview process at the beginning of each academic year.
