Leadership Conference

Held annually in the fall, this educational opportunity is open to all students. This year’s theme is All Aboard the Leadership: Strengthening the Potential of you and your Crew. In 2015, the conference featured guest speakers, Eileen Ruby-Setti and Harriett Steinbach, speaking about the StrengthsFinder assessment.

The Leadership Ambassador Team meets weekly to plan the annual conference and other campus leadership offerings and to discuss leadership topics/issues relevant to their work in promoting leadership education on campus. Recruitment for new leadership ambassadors takes place early in the spring semester along with the selection of our two representatives to attend the LeaderShape Institute.

Please contact any member of the Leadership Ambassador Team with questions about the conference, other programming, and membership opportunities.
