University of Wyoming students are encouraged to register online for the inaugural Student Leadership Conference (SLC) that will take place from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 5, in the upper level of the Wyoming Union.
The free event offers a variety of leadership workshops, networking opportunities and lunch for UW students. The SLC will feature keynote speaker Vernon Wall, a nationally known social justice and leadership educator. Wall has 30 years of student affairs experience and lives in Washington, D.C., where he serves as the director of business development for LeaderShape Inc.

“Leadership is not about a specific title or role, but about how we can influence and improve ourselves, organizations or communities,” says Jeremy Davis, director of the UW Center for Student Involvement and Leadership. “This conference provides a free opportunity for all students to develop an understanding of leadership that will enhance their personal lives, academics and future careers.”
Among the workshops offered, subjects include binary leadership roles, social justice leadership, perceptions of power and community leadership.
Not all academic programs offer leadership development, a critical skill that employers are seeking, Davis says. In response, the SLC is reflective of modern leadership concepts applicable to everyday life.
