Fall Leadership Conference

The LEAD (Leadership, Engagement, Advocacy and Diversity) Office is excited to announce our plans for the 2019 Leadership Conference. The Conference will be held on Saturday, October 26, 2019 from 10 am-3 pm. As in years past, we will kick off the conference with a keynote speech before we split off into breakout sessions.

This conference has been successful over the past seven years with the help of all of you!

The conference includes educational session tracks that are provided to expand on social change (view additional information on the Social Change Model of Leadership if you are unfamiliar). This conference is open to the entire campus community, and the sessions offer valuable learning experiences for all.
