2019 Student Leadership Institute:
Information Coming Soon!

Event overview:

The Student Leadership Institute is a two-day student leadership conference. The inaugural Student Leadership Institute took place on 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. More than 150 students registered for January 26's open access conference and about 30 students participate in January 27's campus leaders retreat.


Dates for the 2019 Student Leadership Institute are coming soon.


Day one of the Student Leadership Institute is an open access student leadership conference -- where faculty, staff, alumni, students, and community partners present on an array of leadership topics, ranging from conflict management, identity development, inclusive language, teambuilding, mentorship, and more. Student are provided breakfast and lunch and will get to hear from an inspiring keynote speaker. The conference allows emerging leaders to build essential skills while also allowing more engaged student leaders to network and develop skills to foster leadership in others.


Day two of the Student Leadership Institute is an application-only student leaders retreat, where student leaders from across campus will come together to tackle issues around campus climate. Students are provided breakfast and lunch and get the opportunity to learn from diversity leaders on campus. Students collaborate in small groups during the day to create and then present action plans. 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.

The call for proposals for the 2019 event will open in fall and registration for the event will open in November or December 2018.
