Southern Illinois University Carbondale is excited to host Illinois TRIO’s 50th Student Leadership Conference. This year’s conference theme is “Leadership Renaissance: Bridging the Past, Building the Future.”

The goals of the conference are to:

  • Develop and Strengthen Leadership Skills:  Students will participate in workshops and sessions geared towards honing their leadership skills. From mastering critical dialogues to strategic thinking and decision-making, we want to help students level up as effective and visionary leaders.

  • Expand their Network: Students will connect with fellow student leaders from different backgrounds and interests. Building meaningful relationships and collaborative partnerships is key to achieving our collective goals and positively impacting their school life and beyond.

  • Empowerment for Success: We believe in the power of student experiences and voices. Our goal is to empower students to articulate their journey, leverage their strengths, and confidently navigate challenges.


Let's embark on this leadership journey together and create a renaissance of impactful leadership!
