  • The National Conference on Student Leadership  is a highly engaging two-and-a-half-day conference for student leaders and their advisors held in November. Its mission is to create a place for college students to enhance their leadership skills to make a difference on campus, in the local community, and beyond. The conference brings together student and professional campus leaders and connects them with ‘best of the best’ leadership educators who offer training sessions based on tested principles in an intentionally designed program. NCSL started in 1978 and thrives today because it provides a nurturing place for a personal examination of values, goals, and dreams with like-minded leaders. Student leaders are eager for a unique opportunity to jumpstart personal and professional growth that continues long after the conference ends.
