Student Leadership Conference

February 9, 2019

61 Charles Street Building from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. 

The annual Student Leadership Conference, hosted by Student Engagement and Equity, brings together our diverse body of UOIT students to explore concepts related to leadership, and participate in the sharing of experiences, ideas, and skills that inspire positive change within the campus community, and beyond. 

The Student Leadership Conference is open to all UOIT students as an opportunity to enhance their leadership knowledge and skills. Participants will have the opportunity to engage with guest speakers, attend workshops on a variety of leadership topics, and connect with their peers through activities and discussion. 

New this year, we would like to invite all UOIT students (undergraduate and graduate) to lead breakout sessions during the morning of the conference. Students interested in presenting must submit a Presentation Proposal Form by Friday January 11, 2019 at midnight.

Presentation proposal form now available - See below for more details! 


Student Engagement and Equity is currently looking for students who would like to share their leadership story, deliver a workshop to other students about something they have learned/practiced, lead a discussion in a topic they are curious about or run a team building exercise. 

Presenters are free to explore ideas, to take risks and to have fun! Presenters will be expected to deliver their workshop/presentation for 20-30 minutes. We encourage all students with an idea to submit a proposal form. If your proposal is approved, our team will work with you to ensure you feel prepared and confident to deliver your workshop. 

Important dates: 

January 11, 2019 at midnight - Deadline to submit presentation proposal form 
January 17, 2019 - Successful applicants will be notified 
January 28 to February 1, 2019 - Presenters will receive 1:1 coaching to prepare for their session 

Students who are selected to present will be awarded a $25 gift card and will be eligible to receive additional Ambassador points. 

Be sure review the Presentation Proposal Questions prior to submission as there is no save feature on the actual form itself.
