Leadership Studies Student Research Symposium

March 22-23, 2013


The first annual Gonzaga University Leadership Studies Student Research Symposium will take place on the campus of Gonzaga University in Spokane, Washington, on March 22-23, 2013. The aim of this conference is to surface and explore emerging questions and/or completed research currently occupying leadership studies undergraduate, masters, and doctoral students at Gonzaga. The conference is intended to stimulate dialogue and critical reflection of the multiple perspectives of our students, our programs and the complexity of the field of leadership studies. The conference is also intended to highlight the theory and practice of leadership studies research methodologies currently alive in our programs. 

Our conference is committed to encouraging leadership scholars and practitioners from various programs and levels to participate in an all-inclusive dialogue about the state of the art in leadership studies at Gonzaga University.

The Leadership Studies Student Research Symposium recognizes that there are many other leadership events happening on campus the same week or weekend as ours. One of these events is the C.L.A.S.S. summit, which our very own Dr. Josh Armstrong will be presenting at. If you are interested in attending this summit, please read on down below for more info.

Gonzaga’s Act Six scholars will host an inaugural C.L.A.S.S summit, on Saturday, March 23, 2013. C.L.A.S.S. stands for Cultural awareness, Leadership, Activism, Social justice, and Service. This will be a half-day (9 a.m.-1 p.m.) event in the Jepson Center and the Globe Room-Cataldo, with the following mission and purpose. The overall goal of C.L.A.S.S. is to educate participants on diversity and multiculturalism and empower you to be agents of social change in an increasingly diverse and global community. We are looking for 100 students to participate in our summit. Please for UMEC and Act Six, let students know about this wonderful leadership development opportunity. Students need to RSVP to join in on our summit and they can sign-up right now. They also can choose two workshops and lunch will be provided. To RSVP, click here.
