WHAT WILL I LEARN AT THE SUMMIT?
Student Leadership & Involvement uses the Social Change Model of Leadership Development as a framework for a series of guided conversations, engaging activities, and keynote addresses.
- “The individual”: Participants will be able to identify the personal qualities (within themselves) needed to support group functioning and positive social change.
- “The group”: Participants will demonstrate skills needed for collaboration to effect positive social change.
- “Community”: Participants will be able to identify ways in which community service influences group development and strengthens individual leadership qualities towards positive social change
MEET THE KEYNOTE AND SLS FACILITATORS
The 2022 Student Leadership Summit will be held on Saturday, October 29th.
Student Leadership & Involvement is excited to host U of U alumna and Salt Lake City Mayor, Erin Mendenhall as the Keynote speaker for the 2022 Summit. Erin Mendenhall was sworn in as the 36th Mayor of Salt Lake City on January 6, 2020. Prior to being elected Mayor, Erin represented District 5 on the City Council for six years, including one year as its chair. She is the first mayor in Salt Lake City history to have been publicly elected from the City Council. As Mayor, Erin is working hard to make Salt Lake City more environmentally and economically resilient, and to take advantage of the region’s historic period of economic opportunity. She is determined to ensure every Salt Laker — no matter their neighborhood, economic or housing status, faith, race, or sexual or gender identity — can access all the city has to offer. Erin’s love for the extraordinary people of Salt Lake City drives an unrelenting commitment to bringing people from different walks of life together in pursuit of results for the entire city.
