Emerging Leaders Conference

April 1, 2008

The CUNY Leadership Academy and the Council of Student Activities Directors conducted its annual Emerging Leaders Conference at The City College on February 29th, 2008. The Emerging Leaders program is designed to encourage students to begin developing leadership skills, explore what it means to be a leader, and encourage them to engage in opportunities that will exist for them at CUNY and beyond.

Attended by over 100 students, administrators, and guests, participants gained skills and knowledge about a variety of topics. Sessions included service learning, civic engagement, networking… and more! Students participated in the “True Colors” personality exercise where they learned about their leadership style and how it affects their interactions with others.

Noted one student: “Participating in the Emerging Leaders Conference was a stimulating experience. I learned valuable lessons about interacting with people while gaining confidence in my ability to become a more action-oriented leader.”
