Leadership Conference

 2015 Fall Leadership Conference October 1st


Join SLC and CAB in welcoming Jon Vroman, an award-winning leadership speaker on October 1st, from 7:00-8:00pm in the UNI Union Ballroom. Vroman will help students step out of their comfort zone and push themselves to pursue what is truly challenging, important, and meaningful. The theme of this event is Living the Fearless #FrontRowLife. Vroman received an award for “Best Campus Speaker” in 2014 - and this will be an event you don’t want to miss! Get ready to be motivated to live a Fearless Front Row Life! We'll be giving away some door prizes to some lucky attendees!

There is also a short meet and greet afterwards that students can attend if they would like!


Leadership Development Committee:

 Leadership Committee


Our leadership development committee plans, organizes, and facilitates one leadership conference per semester. Leadership conferences include various interactive events in order for students to learn and grow as a student leader. The leadership development committee also works to implement leadership initiatives and help all SLC members develop leadership skills.


Being a member of this committee would include assisting in the planning and facilitating of the leadership conferences. There are many aspects of a conference that you can assist in planning such as: speaker selection, obtaining funding, partnering with other student organizations or professors for the event, administrative tasks, promoting events, etc. 


Past conferences have included topics such as: 

    • Motivating yourself and others
    • How to organize a committee
    • Value driven leadership
    • Poverty simulation to understand the challenges and the need for volunteering
