LEAD Conference

The U of M LEAD Conference on Student Leadership, a partnership with Carnival Memphis and The Jefferson Awards, provides training and networking opportunities for nearly 300 college and high school student leaders annually. Through a combination of keynote speakers, self-selected breakout sessions, and shared conversations, students hear from campus and community leaders about a range of topics meant to support organizational growth and personal development.  Time is built into the day for peer networking among student leaders to promote collaborative efforts and programming.

The next Conference will be held on Saturday, November 15, 2014 from 9:00 am until 3:00 pm on the third floor of the University Center.
