Student Diversity & Leadership Conference

The Student Diversity & Leadership Conference is a free experience meant to provide students an environment that encourages self-exploration, understanding of others, and a deeper appreciation of those on our campus and in our community.

Saturday, March 15, 2014, Reeve Memorial Union

Optional service opportunity: Shamrock Shuffle

Consider signing up for the Shamrock Shuffle. You can fundraise through racing or volunteer to help setup. Volunteers who are attending the conference will be served lunch at the Student Recreation and Wellness Center. Funds raised at the Shamrock Shuffle benefit the Oshkosh United Way and multicultural programming at UWO. For more information about the race, visit the website.

This year, we are partnering with Student Recreation to provide a volunteer opportunity for participants with the Shamrock Shuffle. Also, we are excited announce that Dr. Petra Roter will open our conference and welcome the students. Dr. Sylvia Carey-Butler will talk about Inclusive Excellence. Our keynote will be Stan Pearson II with his empowering words on “How to be the IT”. We have received several applications for programs from UWO students, staff, and faculty, and the call for program is still open. We will close the event with a cultural event, including Hmong dancers and a dinner that will feature Hmong food.
