Student Leadership Conference, Rethinking Leadership!

At the SLC 2011, delegates will attend two concurrent workshops held by students, faculty, alumni and community partners. The concurrent workshops are a large and valuable part of the SLC experience. These workshops not only give the opportunity for participants to grow as leaders, but also provide the workshop presenters with a chance to develop leadership skills such as facilitation and to make an impact on current and emerging student leaders.


The Highlighted Project is a new initiative of the SLC that allows students to pitch their ideas to a room of student leaders and industry professionals in order to find the support for launching their innovative ideas and projects. Presenters can use the conference as a medium for receiving feedback and engaging other students. They will also have the opportunity to interact with professionals that work in the corresponding field and take advantage of their expertise in order to kick start their initiatives and projects.


Established by the 2010 SLC Planning Committee, SLC Faces of Today is back for a second year! Faces of Today is an initiative in which a collection of UBC’s leaders are showcased through a series of videos shown during the Student Leadership Conference. At the 2011 Conference we are Rethinking Leadership. Our goal this year is to feature students who lead in innovative ways at UBC. We want to recognize leaders who are shaping communities by having the confidence to do things differently.

If you know a student or young alumnus who fits this description, we want to hear about them! Please visit for further information and to fill out a nomination form. Nominations open this Wednesday and close Sunday, October 24, 2010.
