“There will be a variety of presentations and interactive activities to appeal to different students’ learning styles,” said Jackie Victory, director of the Office of Student Leadership and Service.

This year, students can choose from three concurrent tracks: emerging leadership, women’s leadership and Greek new members.

“Students are free to attend more than one track,” said Victory. “We’ve been doing this since 2003, and we’ve averaged about 100 participants each time. But now that we’ve added these components, we’re expecting attendance to go up.”

Hailey Horton, a graduate student and higher education major from Selmer, Tenn., who works in the Office of Student Leadership and Service, said the summit offers “a good chance to network, get to know other students and learn things they’re doing.”

The Blue Raider Leadership Summit is sponsored by the Office of Student Leadership and Service and co-sponsored by the Intercultural and Diversity Affairs Center, the June Anderson Center for Women and Nontraditional Students and Fraternity and Sorority Life.
