Each year, the Office of Student Leadership and Civic Engagement hosts a Leadership Conference open to all NSU students. The conference is held each January during the winter semester. The conference provides students with the opportunity to learn from a variety of speakers and facilitators– both faculty and staff from the university and outside speakers offering leadership expertise. Students can also connect with the faculty, staff, presenters, and other students to expand their network at the university.
Like our other programs in the Office of Student Leadership and Civic Engagement, the program follows the identified core competencies based on the National Association of Campus Activities Student Leader competencies. We structure our programs within these competencies to offer students the ability to continue their growth and development throughout their university experience.
