The Center for Leadership is excited to launch the inaugural Student Leadership Institute from Friday, January 26- Saturday, January 27, 2018 in partnership with Fraternity & Sorority Life, the MultiCultural Center, New Student & Transition Programs, University Housing, and the Career Services Diversity Funding Committee. Last year, the Center for Leadership conducted surveys and focus groups with student leaders and advisors of student groups. The results led us to design the two-day Student Leadership Institute. For any questions about the Student Leadership Institute, please email email@example.com.
This year's theme is Spark the Leader Within. The inaugural Student Leadership Institute is designed to encourage new leaders to discover their existing leadership talents and encourage more experienced student leaders to challenge themselves and foster leadership in others.
Friday, January 26, 2018 is an open access student leadership conference -- we are inviting faculty, staff, alumni, community partners, and students to present on an array of topics. The conference will allow emerging leaders to build essential skills while also allowing more engaged student leaders to network and develop skills to foster leadership in others. We want to challenge and inspire students with engaging sessions. A sample schedule will be posted in mid-November. Check out the registration information below to attend.
We recognize students have work, class, and other commitments on week days, so students who plan to attend Friday's student leadership conference, can come and go as they please. However, participating students will be entered to win prizes, like an Apple Watch, based on how many sessions they attend.
Friday's events will be bookended by two dynamic speakers. We are excited to welcome Dr. Ronda Beaman of Cal Poly and PEAK Learning and Phillip Sanders of the Ella Baker Center as our afternoon keynote.
Saturday, January 27, 2018 is an application-only student leaders retreat, where student leaders from across campus will come together to tackle issues around campus climate. Our goal is that the two-day event will be both empowering and education, and challenge students to build and apply leadership skills to effect social change. Check out the registration information below to attend; preference will be given to students who are not graduating in June 2018.
