This year's Leadership Symposium consists of FACS students who are a part of the college. The Leadership Symposium is a time for students to reflect on their leadership journey and experiences. Each student created a leadership showcase that displays their leadership development. You will have the opportunity to view the leadership showcases now, so that you will be able to discuss the student's experiences further.
This event will be held Wednesday, April 28, from 11:00 - 2:00 p.m. Click the link to register: https://tinyurl.com/21facslead
