Selected student leaders at The University of Southern Mississippi attended the second Student Leadership Summit hosted by The Office of Student Activities on the Hattiesburg campus at the Trent Lott National Center Friday, March 4.
The Student Leadership Summit is a day dedicated to equipping students with tips and tools to enhance their leadership skills. Any Southern Miss student can apply to attend.
Fifty-six students from the Hattiesburg campus and six students from the Gulf Park campus were selected as delegates for this year's event. The day began with a lunch and a keynote presentation by Jim Coll, chief communication officer and director of University Communications at Southern Miss. Coll's presentation focused on lessons in leadership.
After lunch, delegates chose from three different educational offerings per session to attend. Four educational session blocks were offered. Presentations were selected from applications from various staff and faculty members across campus.
“We're delighted to offer the Summit again this year to our student leaders on campus,” said Emily Holmes, associate director for programs with the Union and Programs Department. “We designed this event to be a premiere opportunity for leadership development for any student at Southern Miss.”
The day concluded with a photo of all delegates and a special reception with Vice President for Student Affairs Dr. Tom Burke, hosted by the President's Office.
