Apply to present at the 2020 All for NT/NT for All Leadership Conference!


The Center for Leadership and Service is putting out a call for presentation proposals for the 2020 All for NT/NT for All Leadership Conference.

What is the All for NT/NT for All Leadership Conference? A two-day conference focused on introducing students to topics that enhance their leadership skills and connecting them to other students to create a network of support. The conference focuses on the Social Change Model of Leadership, where the term “leader” can be non-titled or non-positional, but a participant engaging in the leadership process as a group member.

Based on this model, there are three tracks that students can choose from to guide their conference experience: Leading Self, Leading at UNT, and Leading in a Diverse World. This year we will be breaking those tracks down even further through leadership development. Students can identify and practice their skills as emerging, intermediate, or experienced leaders. Our theme for 2020: Follow the Leadership Road: Finding your way at Home, will focus on how leadership is transforming, and how it is presenting itself virtually during a time of national and global social change. We would like for participants to gain knowledge of how they can be leaders on campus and at home. They may be remote, but that does not mean they need to be unplugged.

Date: Friday, October 9, 2020, and Saturday, October 10, 2020

Register here to present by Wednesday, Sept. 23rd: https://unt.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_23rK5RHx5KtNAl7

We believe that student organizations create opportunities for leadership development, learning, and student engagement by offering a unique platform and a continuing purpose to support the goals and mission of UNT.

PDS offers a variety of resources to help make each student organization unique and distinctively special such as-

• Promotional Merchandise

• Printing

• Signs and Banners

• Branded Apparel

• Awards
