Student Life Leadership Conference 2022


Navigating Life Unexpected: Continuous Transition

Beginning a semester, rebuilding a career, recovering from a lost relationship, starting a family, retiring…what do these have in common? Transitions. At our 2022 Leadership Conference, we hope students will learn from different staff, faculty, community stakeholders, business leaders, and peers about navigating unexpected life events. Students will leave this conference equipped to identify, navigate, persevere, and prepare for the next life transition that is sure to come.

The conference will take place in spring of 2022. At this time, we are accepting presentation proposals for anyone who would like to participate in the conference. Please see our proposal guidelines and submission below.

Have an idea of someone who you think best exemplifies this year’s theme of “Navigating Life Unexpected”? Let us know! 

Please nominate presenters and keynote speakers that you would like to hear from! You CAN submit this form more than once, so please feel free to share as many suggestions as you would like!


We need presentations of all kinds. If your experience or expertise can speak to any transition or life change (professional or personal) then we need you. Think about the following questions:

  • What are things you wish someone had told you during a life altering event? 
  • What are common transitions that often surprise students?
  • How can your professional and personal experience assist students as they navigate unexpected turns in life?

Anyone: students, staff, faculty, community members….All are welcome to submit a proposal to participate as a presenter in this year’s conference.

To be considered for our conference, develop a presentation idea and complete the Presentation Proposal. Each proposal submission will undergo our selection process. If your presentation is selected, you will be notified by the end of the year.

The deadline to submit is November 28, 2021 by 11:59 PM.
