This afternoon, I had the great pleasure of kicking off our inaugural CSU Student Leadership Conference at the Cunningham Center. More than 100 students from across the university will spend the afternoon and most of the evening immersed in leadership training. The training workshops/seminars will be delivered by 20-plus CSU faculty/staff/grad students and community leaders who have worked mightily in building a great agenda.
Our director of orientation and student leadership, Collins Brown, working closely with her boss, Dr. Kimberly McElveen, developed an exceptional agenda. The interest level and enthusiasm among the students was sky high and, this spring, these students will attend a monthly leadership session as well. This is very important for our university and will have a profound impact on these students.
