McDonough Leadership Conference

Conference Theme:

"Concrete Leadership: Bridging the Divide Between Theory and Practice"

April 10-11, 2015

Conference Chair: Taylor Hanigosky (Cohort 26)


Leadership has emerged in recent decades as a major field of study in higher education. Today, many colleges and universities offer exciting curricular and co-curricular programs in Leadership Studies – challenging their students to develop their leadership skills in preparation for a life of purpose and engagement. It is in this spirit of intellectual exploration, scholarship, self-reflection and personal leadership development that the McDonough Leadership Center annually hosts the McDonough Leadership Conference.

Through the generous support of corporate sponsors, the conference is offered free of charge. However, you must register in order to attend the conference events. Some events (e.g., keynote luncheons, workshops) have limited spaces and will be filled on a first-come-first-serve basis.
