LSU to Host Multicultural Student Leadership Conference

10/13/2011 09:22 AM

BATON ROUGE – The LSU African-American Cultural Center will host the annual Multicultural Student Leadership Conference, or MSLC, on Saturday, Oct. 29, from 8 a.m. – 3 p.m. in the LSU Student Union.

 

Based on the conference theme, "Discovering Dimensions of Diversity," participants will be able to select from various engaging and interactive workshops that will enhance their leadership skills while challenging their awareness areas of diversity.

 

Session topics include looking past biases; religious freedom; bullying; peer accountability; personal and organizational finances; and lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer, or LGBTQ, awareness.

 

The second half of the conference will feature a keynote address by Evettte Castillo Clark, who serves as the assistant dean of students in the Division of Student Affairs at Tulane University in New Orleans. As assistant dean of students, Clark oversees their strategic planning, research and outcomes assessment, technology, staff development and public relations, and serves as a student and parent liaison. Her areas of research include college students of color, creating a pipeline of undergraduate students to careers in student affairs and leadership in higher education.

 

MSLC is free and open to all LSU undergraduate and graduate students. It is the only leadership conference on campus that focuses on various components of diversity while incorporating leadership competency skill sets.

 

The conference is co-sponsored by Student Government, through the Programming Support Initiatives Fund; Residential Life; and the Cox Communications Academic Center for Student-Athletes.

 

Students interested in attending MSLC can register online at www.lsu.edu/aacc. Conference participants will receive complimentary breakfast and lunch, conference T-shirt and a conference booklet.
