The University of Prince Edward Island will host approximately 750 Canadian Student Leadership Conference (CSLC) delegates and 250 advisors on Friday, September 20 from 12:30–2:00 pm for a campus tour, UPEI’s “Amazing Race,” and an evening concert at 7:00 pm by local musician Tim Chaisson.
“UPEI is thrilled to take part in this event and we look forward to hosting the delegates on our campus during the conference,” said Christian Lacroix, UPEI’s interim Vice-President Academic. “We’re excited to meet our future community leaders.”
While at UPEI, these students will get the chance to meet with UPEI Student Union officials, faculty, staff and students, including UPEI athletes, coaches, and mascot Pride.
“The University of Prince Edward Island has partnered with us for this amazing event,” said Bethany MacLeod Co-Chair of the 2013 CSLC. “Students will be given the opportunity to visit UPEI and partake in leadership activities. We thank UPEI for helping to inspire our nation’s future leaders.
The CSLC’s mission is to “promote and develop student leadership within Canadian high schools.” Throughout the conference, students will attend a series of workshops to further develop their leadership skills, build confidence, and discover new ideas to help them make a difference in their schools and communities.
UPEI welcomes all CSLC participants and wishes them luck in their future endeavours!
