4th Annual Leadership Institute, 4/11

The Center for Leadership Development and Campus Connections are hosting the 4th Annual Leadership Institute on Friday, April 11th on the 7th floor of University Hall from 8:30 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. This event is free to current Montclair State University students and alumni via the link below.

The primary focus of this year's Leadership Institute will educate participants on how to standout as a leader in several different facets. There will be 4 different leadership tracks to help students learn material that is most applicable to their current needs. Each track will have suggested sessions for participants to attend, but they are not required.


Our keynote speaker, Professor Laureen LeFever, will kick off the day through highlighting a skill that all leaders need to be successful...public speaking, for new and current leaders. This motivating and high energy speaker will make you look at public speaking in a new way after you've seen her in action! She will provide you with tips, tricks, and suggestions that you can apply to meetings, presentations, group projects, and in class. Be prepared to laugh, learn, and get energized, in this first opening session!

  • Leading from the Soul: A Guide to Connecting and Motivating Others
  • Keynote Break Out: Going Deeper into Leadership and Public Speaking
