2024 Student Leadership Conference Seeking Presenters

The 2024 Student Leadership Conference will take place on March 8, 2024, and the Center for Career & Leadership Development (CCLD) is still looking for break-out presenters.

The Student Leadership Conference is one of the main components of the University’s leadership development offerings. Because leadership is a critical component of a student’s professional development, all Student Leadership Programs, including the conference, will be developed and implemented with the following guiding principles in mind:

  • All students have the capacity to demonstrate leadership
  • Leadership is purposeful and collaborative
  • Leadership is service and civic engagement
  • Leadership concepts are explored across all academic disciplines and can be learned through curricular and co-curricular experiences
  • Leadership is a process that leads to social change

The 2024 Student Leadership Conference will have two interdependent themes: the identification of leadership styles and the development of a leadership philosophy. The goals of the conference will be to help students:

  • Identify what leadership style they naturally gravitate towards.
  • Understand how and why leadership styles may have to be adapted to effectively handle different situations and teams.
  • Utilize the knowledge they have acquired about their personal leadership style to develop a working leadership philosophy.

To address this focus, proposed sessions should address one or more of the following learning outcomes:

      By the end of the conference, attendees will be able to:

  • Utilize assessment data to identify their preferred leadership style.
  • Articulate a leadership philosophy based on their preferred leadership style.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of how their leadership style influences their leadership philosophy.
  • Explain how and why they may need to adapt their leadership style to changing circumstances.
