The National Jesuit Student Leadership Conference (NJSLC) is a five-day conference for all 28 Jesuit Universities throughout the United States. This conference is designed for student leaders to prepare for their leadership positions with other students. The conference is full of workshops, social activities, small group discussions, a day of service, and opening and closing banquets. NJSLC gives students a unique opportunity to learn about their specific leadership position and meet students from across the country who have similar positions. It allows students to bond, not only with their leadership team from their University, but also, meet and get to know hundreds of other students.
Santa Clara University is the host for whole of NJSLC this year, but Day 3 of the conference is being hosted and held at the University of San Francisco with activities, tours, and banquets throughout the day.
Our theme speaks to the roots of the Jesuit mission and tradition. As student leaders at Jesuit Universities, we have cultivated many skills and values throughout the formation and reflection inherent in a Jesuit education. This conference aims to encourage continual formation in Jesuit student leaders, but more importantly it seeks to ignite in students a desire and focus to apply these skills in our global society and make a positive impact. Throughout the conference, students will delve deeper into the themes of: Ethics and Sustainability, Innovation, and Global Citizenship.
