The 11th Annual Multicultural Student Leadership Conference is intentionally designed for students, educators, practitioners and administrators to share their knowledge and skills. We are dedicated to diversity, equity, and inclusion!

The conference also allows emerging students, activist,  and community leaders to further develop their own knowledge and skills around these topics.

Message from the Director

grant Dear Student Leaders, Community Members, Advisors, Faculty and Staff:

The Office of Multicultural Affairs and the African American Cultural Center will host the 11th Annual Multicultural Student Leadership Conference at Louisiana State University in the LSU Student Union in Baton Rouge, Louisiana on October 27-28, 2017.  The conference will inspire, build, and renew relationships with each other and our communities.  To enhance the cultural tapestry of our university, we invite all to live, learn, and grow in their leadership, in their identities, and in their service to others.  We hope you will lead sessions and enjoy the engaging and energetic agenda we have planned from poets to authors, fairs to dynamic speakers, from our amazing workshops to our professional engagement opportunities, we have something for everyone!

As we experience change on individual, community, institutional, and national levels, I challenge you to be the change you wish to see in the world.  Through debate, deliberation, and dialogue, we can become stronger as we impact each other through our openness to learn and grow from one another.  This conference continues to remind us, we must continue to be a community that strives to be more welcoming to all, regardless of sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, disability, religion, ideology, or the many distinctions that make us unique individuals. 

We look forward to continuing our work with you, as well as positively impacting the world!
