2020 Blueprints Student Leadership Conference Save the Date

The 2020 Blueprints Student Leadership Conference is a conference experience open to all KU students designed, through Equity-Centered Leadership, to develop their leadership skills, build cross-campus connections, and confront antiquated leadership norms that hinder their capacity to engage in challenges of the new era. More information for you and students in the Student Housing and how to get involved will be coming soon. If there are others folks around campus that you know would be interested, please send this their way.

Thank you for supporting student leadership, we in SILC look forward to starting the next decade of leadership with you.
