Thank you, and see you at the 2017 Mark Conference!

Saturday, March 4, 2017

Thank you for a great conference this year! The purpose of the Mark Conference is to inspire action among students and encourage them to think critically about the “mark” they will leave on the world around them. The Department of Leadership and Experiential Learning wants to empower students to think of themselves as agents of change not only on campus but within the community and the world. Are you someone who has an ambition to make your mark in some capacity? If so, apply to become a Mark Captain for the 2017 Mark Conference.
