Applications Available For Student Leadership Conference

Each spring, the Office of Student Life takes a group of students for a weekend-long leadership training. The Student Leadership Conference provides an exceptional learning opportunity for student leaders who are involved in or are interested in a leadership role in any campus student organization. A powerful growth experience awaits you — are you ready?

The Leadership Conference is designed to:

  • recruit quality student leaders for the upcoming academic year
  • create camaraderie and teamwork among student leaders
  • reduce cultural barriers among student leaders.
  • give all participants an opportunity for personal growth and development

You can expect to be introduced to experiences to help you become more self-affirming, self-directed, open, and empathetic in your communication with others, and aware of strategies for planning and implementing campus activities.

The three-day training workshop will include mini-lectures, group activities, small group discussions and sharing, directed conversations, team-building activities, and informal interaction with fellow participants and faculty/staff facilitators.

Applications are available in any Student Life Office at any campus. A $20 refundable application fee applies. Deadline to apply is Friday, March 6.
