Leadership Development 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
