Student Leadership Conference


The Conference

The Student Leadership Conference (SLC) is one of Canada’s largest student-run conferences, taking place at the University of British Columbia every January. Through a series of inspiring speakers and interactive workshops, delegates are provided with resources to help them develop as leaders to thrive within the campus community. The SLC will be taking place Jan 9, 2016.

Mission Statement

The Student Leadership Conference (SLC) will facilitate a collaborative and inclusive educational environment, which will inspire the campus community, provide valuable peer-to-peer learning experiences, and engage students as they share and develop their leadership skills effectively. The SLC will provide delegates the means to expand their individual leadership potential as well as avenues to apply those skills, on individual and group levels, within the global community while embodying social, economical, and environmentally sustainable practices.

2016 Theme: Make History

Make History is a celebration of the past, present and future of UBC. It recognizes our history as individuals and as an institution. Make History is about building on the accomplishments of our past to create a plan and vision for the future. It is an opportunity for you to consider how you fit into this campus and, more largely, the global community as a whole. What will your defining moments be? What legacy will you leave behind? How will you contribute to the communities you’re a part of? How will YOU Make History?
