About the Conference

The 4th Annual Gonzaga University Leadership Studies Student Research Symposium will take place on the campus of Gonzaga University in Spokane, Washington, on April 1st and 2nd, 2016. The aim of this conference is to explore emerging questions, completed research, and service learning projects currently being developed within the undergraduate, masters, and doctoral leadership studies 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 goal is to highlight the leadership studies projects and research currently alive in our programs.

Our conference organizers are committed to encouraging leadership student scholars and practitioners from various programs and levels to participate in an all-inclusive dialogue about leadership studies at Gonzaga University.

Please check back in January 2017 for more information about the 5th Annual Symposium!
