Influence U Conference

The original Influence U Student Leadership Conference was a collaboration amongst staff responsible for advising students with leadership in major campus-wide organizations (Ambassadors, Conference Service Assistants, Orientation Leaders, Residence Advisors, Service Scholars, Emerging Leaders, Living Learning Community-Peer Academic Leaders). Our goal was to create a campus conference where we could send our students to get one coherent message on leadership.

The first Influence U Student Leadership Conference “Leaders on the Road to Oz” was implemented in January 2012 with a turnout of over 100 student leaders. The second annual conference, “The Voice of Leadership: Choose How You Lead” which was planned and executed by a committee of students, was even more successful than the first. Conference presenters have included SAGE and traditional students, college alumnae, faculty, staff, and local leaders.
