NATIONAL CONFERENCE ON STUDENT LEADERSHIP
The National Conference on Student Leadership (NCSL) brings together collegiate student leaders and campus professionals to learn effective, leadership and life skills directly from cutting-edge innovators in industry, education, and the nonprofit sector. The conference will prepare you to lead as an individual, as a member of a team (such as student government, clubs, and committees), and in engagement with your community and the wider world.
NCSL thrives today because we provide a nurturing place for a personal examination of values, goals, and dreams with like-minded leaders. Our student leaders are eager to jumpstart personal and professional growth that will continue long after the conference ends. Our program is rooted in current research and models of leadership, pathways to career development, connections with leaders from around the world, and learning from practitioners who specialize in topic areas of personal growth, team management, professional success, civic engagement, and social justice.
SOCIAL JUSTICE TRAINING INSTITUTE "THE STUDENT EXPERIENCE"
"Students who attend the institute will be given the opportunity to explore the identities that make up who they are and better understand the extent to which these identities impact all they do. Through facilitated activities and exercises along with small group dialogue, participants will engage in conversations that will challenge and support them in their journey toward understanding how they can each - individually - impact our global community. To this end, each student will be asked to obtain a Coach from their home campus and to develop a Social Justice Commitment (SJC) detailing personal growth goals, an intervention that will impact their home campus and ways in which they can contribute to their community. The Coach must be a faculty member, staff member or administrator on the student's home campus. Participants will work with their Coach after the institute to continue their growth process and to implement their SJC."
The Social Justice Training Institute will provide an intensive developmental opportunity for students to examine the complex dynamics of oppression and to develop strategies to foster positive change on their campuses and in their communities.
