Call for Proposals: 5th Annual Social Justice Leadership Conference


From the Student Activities and Leadership Development Office (SALD):

Be a part of the 5th Annual Social Justice Leadership Conference! We want your session proposals! This year’s conference theme is Building Bridges: Connecting Community Across Difference and will be held on Saturday, February 23rd. We encourage you to submit a session proposal and to be part of this amazing day! Session proposals are being accepted until Monday, February 4, 2013 at 4pm. Click the link to submit a proposal.

The mission of the Social Justice Leadership Conference (SJLC) is a collaborative effort which provides a space for students, student groups, community members, alumni, faculty, and staff to discuss social justice and to learn and refine leadership skills. SJLC seeks to empower its participants to create change by applying the skills and knowledge acquired during the conference.

A key part of the SJLC are the breakout sessions, where students, student groups, alumni, community members, faculty and staff facilitate sessions in their area of interest, expertise, or passion. Sessions focus on leadership skills that may be applied to any social movement and on the many manifestations of injustice and how participants can be involved in creating change.
