FedUni Student Leadership Conference Announcement & Call for Submissions.

Leadership_handWe are delighted to announce the inaugural FedUni Student Leadership Conference – 9th and 10th October 2014, and welcome submissions from potential facilitators.

Conference theme:
“Place, Passion and Participation – Leadership in regional contexts”.

This conference will bring together existing and aspiring student leaders from across all Federation University campuses, including partner providers and online students. The conference aims not only to spark the passion for leadership of all kinds amongst the next generation of leaders, but also to promote the leadership opportunities available in regional settings.

We want students to see themselves as inspirational leaders of, and advocates for, their local regions and to consider the impact they could make by remaining locally after graduation as a genuine alternative to moving to larger cities.

We are currently inviting proposals from a range of disciplines to facilitate a session at the conference which fit within the conference theme, above. All submissions must define their intended objectives and outcomes/impacts.
We welcome submissions from FedUni staff and students, as well as facilitators from outside the University. Please head to http://bit.ly/FedUniLeadershipConf2014 for the submission guidelines.
