National Center for Student Leadership
Spring 2015 Conference

Educating, inspiring and empowering today’s collegiate leaders

The annual spring National Center for Student Leadership Conference, now in its 37th year, is a three-day conference dedicated to providing an excellent learning opportunity. It brings together hundreds of students and student affairs professionals from campuses nationally and internationally to:

  • Explore essential leadership topics in an interactive setting
  • Hear from experts with real-world leadership experience from academia and business 
  • Experience activities that encourage collaboration and communication
  • Network with like-minded individuals who are passionate about leadership

This conference does not focus on one specific leadership model. Instead, it focuses on attributes that are essential to being a successful leader including: individual growth, group development, and civic-mindedness.

NCSL also offers specific workshops that help leaders leverage leadership roles as they transition from campus to a professional career. The content is hands-on, practical and applicable, so that you can implement what you learn right away.

We’ve brought back top-rated presenters and added important new voices as well. In a full slate of keynote presentations and workshops, you’ll learn about a variety of topics including:

  • Conflict with civility
  • Diversity and inclusion on campus
  • Etiquette for leaders
  • Fundraising using social media
  • Goal setting and achievement
  • Marketing yourself for success
  • Negotiation for leaders
  • Officer transition and change
  • Persuasive Speaking
  • Planning and executing successful events
  • Public relations
  • Publicity and promotions
  • Servant leadership
  • Transformational leadership
  • Much, much more

And of course, you will learn plenty outside the presentations and workshops by sharing ideas and experiences with delegates from other campuses. It’s a great opportunity to network and collaborate.

Expect lively discussion, spirited debate, and a rewarding exchange of ideas throughout all four days. You can count on leaving the conference informed, inspired, and brimming with ideas you can put in to action right away.
