MCLA's 21st Annual Student Leadership Conference
Call for Programs Proposal Deadline: Friday, December 4, 2015
Conference Theme:Leadership through the Decades
For the past 20 years, Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts has provided students with the opportunity to examine the topic of leadership and build personal leadership skills through its annual conference. During previous conferences, students have had the opportunity to learn from one another about leadership as well as gain some practical skills that can be put to use immediately. It is the hope of the committee that students attending this conference will challenge each other to expand their thinking, investigate the diversity of leadership among them, and set high standards for leadership on their campus. Students rave about this opportunity and look forward to the conference. We are excited to offer this opportunity for the 21st year in a row this coming February!
With this year's theme of Leadership Through the Decades our hope is to inspire students to think about past leaders that endured hard work and dedication. We selected the theme to encourage students to examine leadership opportunities on their own campuses and discover new ways to implement what they have learned. Experienced and new leaders will assess their needs and focus on challenges, while opening a world of options from which to strengthen their own abilities.
