On Saturday, November 14, spend a day developing your leadership skills at the 2015 Fall Leadership Conference. This year’s theme: passion, diversity, and change.

The Fall Leadership Conference is a professional conference which strives to foster leadership development in multidisciplinary aspects of campus life and the surrounding community. On Saturday, November 14, from 10:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m., all students, faculty, and staff are invited for a day of leadership development, workshops, and discussions focusing on this year’s theme: passion, diversity, and change.

This year’s keynote address will be delivered by Joshua Fredenburg, a nationally recognized speaker, author, and leadership consultant who provides expert advice on leadership, diversity, and healthy relationships in a practical, engaging, applicable, inspiring, and dynamic manner. Already, he has reached thousands of emerging and seasoned leaders in over 42 different states as a keynote speaker, workshop presenter, and leadership expert.

The closing session will be delivered by Hannah Tall ’12, who has been working in youth development since her childhood. She is passionate about “working for” young people as she likes to put it. This passion has led her to serve teens and young adults via college access, civic engagement, education, and sports-based youth development work. Driven by her belief in the Xhosa principle of ubuntu, Tall has made her life’s work about helping people find and share their talents as a service to their communities. As US program manager with Move This World, Hannah connects with and works to empower educators to co-create safer learning environments with their students.

Admission to the conference is $5. To register, view the event’s schedule, or volunteer at the conference, click here
