The Center for Student Leadership and Engagement is set to host Clemson University’s inaugural Leadership Week from Monday, Feb. 28 through Saturday, March 5. The robust programming schedule for the week encompasses in-person and virtual seminars, sessions and workshops designed to bring exposure to leadership opportunities in the student population.

Together, programming efforts will center on six key themes: communication, strategic planning, building community, sustaining legacy, collaboration and personal growth.

“Leadership Week is built upon the belief of preparing confident and capable student leaders,” said Cara Snider, assistant director for community leader development. “We’ll have programs and events all week to celebrate Clemson leaders and engage in conversations about best leadership practices.”

Leadership Week includes a keynote address from Dr. Delphine Dean, the 2020 Class of ’39 Award for Excellence winner. Dean serves as the Ron and Jane Lindsay Family Innovation Professor of Bioengineering and is responsible for the successful implementation and management of Clemson’s first high-complexity clinical diagnostics (CLIA) lab on campus for COVID-19 testing. The keynote and reception will take place in 100 Vickery Hall from 7-9 p.m. on Tuesday, March 1.

Leadership Week also includes exposure to specific communities at Clemson, including student veterans and military-connected students. Green Zone Training helps others understand the military experience of student veterans as they transition into higher education and is scheduled for Friday, March 4 from 11 a.m.-12 p.m. in 302 Sirrine Hall.

The week culminates with the annual Women in Leadership Conference from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. on Saturday, March 5. The conference — featuring the theme of “Redefining” —  will be held in person for the first time since 2020, at Hendrix Student Center. Registration is open for the conference.
