10 a.m. – 4 p.m. (check-in starts at 9:30 a.m.)
North Hall, Rider University, Lawrenceville Campus

Rider University’s Center for the Development of Leadership Skills is proud to host our 3rd annual Leadership Symposium!

The vision of the symposium is to foster an opportunity for student leaders from various higher education institutions to interact with each other through the shared experience of learning from and dialoging with knowledgeable professionals. Every year, we were honored to have students from regional universities, such as TCNJ, Rutgers, Seton Hall, and The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey, join us for the symposium.  It’s a wonderful opportunity for student leaders to meet each other and come together in the shared interest of learning about leadership.

In past symposiums, we’ve focused our discussions on ethics, civic engagement, and the ways in which technology is changing how leadership is practiced.  This year, our symposium will challenge our participants on what it means to be a culturally minded leader.

Participants will be given the opportunity to learn and reflect upon topics such as the complexities of culture, intercultural communication, and making the shift from tolerance to nurturance.  Throughout the day, leaders will be able to learn from keynotes and presentations by educated and experienced leaders and work as teams to represent their ideas of a culturally minded leadership world.

The symposium is unique in that the 50 student participants are able to engage in meaningful dialogue with peers and leadership educators, as well as share their ideas and best practices with each other.  

We sincerely hope that you will consider joining us for Rider’s Leadership Symposium 2017!  We are in the midst of constructing a transformative and collaborative experience, but you are welcome to register today to claim your seat for this well-received and engaging event!
