Student Leadership Summit Vision

Our goal is to utilize this year’s Student Leadership Summit to create a conversation around anti-racism and racial justice in regards to leadership development. As such, our vision for the Summit is as follows: 

Participants of the Summit will..

  • Understand their role in systemic racism and intentionally work to be anti-racist through student leadership competencies 
  • Allow meaningful dialogue that is inclusive to different identities that comprise the U of M community
  • Leverage personal strengths to engage in this conversation and understanding how each of us can contribute 
  • Gain understanding about three competency areas (learning and reasoning, interpersonal interaction, civic responsibility)
  • Understand intersectionality in terms of leadership development
  • Form a sense of community among participants in the Student Leadership Summit

Our hope is that the virtual summit this fall will be an entry point into this vision that we can continue in person together in the future.
