Organized by Student Leadership & Involvement, the summit will connect likeminded students. Using the Social Change Model for Leadership Development as a framework, SLS staff facilitators will illustrate leadership as purposeful, collaborative and values-driven. Participants will spend most of the day engaging with a smaller cohort of students in a series of conversations and activities.

It is an opportunity for students to depart with a new network of peer student leaders and inspiration to create positive change on campus or in the community. Students will advance their skills in communication, decision making and team building.
