Leadership Conference

Each year, the Office of Student Leadership and Civic Engagement hosts a Leadership Conference open to all NSU students. The conference provides students with the opportunity to learn from a variety of speakers and facilitators–both faculty and staff from the university as well as outside speakers offering leadership expertise. Students can also connect with 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, conference sessions focused on leadership will follow 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.

For more information, please contact the Office of Student Leadership and Civic Engagement at (954) 262-7195 or by email at slce@nova.edu.

The daylong conference is open to the NSU public to provide students the opportunity to further develop their leadership skills, participate in workshops and discussions, and learn from a variety of speakers and facilitators. Both faculty and staff from the university, as well as fellow student peers and outside speakers will have the chance to facilitate presentations based on their experience in our four program focuses: Diversity and Global Awareness, Communication and Interpersonal Interaction, Personal and Professional Growth, and Group Development.

Registration is currently closed for the Winter 2020 conference. Check back in Fall 2020 for information regarding registration for our upcoming conference.
