About the Summer Leadership Conference

The Summer Leadership Conference is a three-day conference that brings Penn State student representatives together from across the commonwealth. Participants attend several workshops aimed at enhancing their leadership, citizenship and networking skills.

This year's Summer Leadership Conference will be held virtually on August 1-3, 2022 at Penn State Altoona.


The Penn State Summer Leadership Conference will provide a challenging and motivating experience for participants where they will learn to be empowered, confident leaders, both personally and professionally, and will be inspired to lead purposeful lives while upholding the Penn State values.

  • Enhance essential skills and competencies and identify areas for further exploration and development in the pursuit of leadership excellence; specifically ethical decision making, creative education and innovation, group dynamics, and conflict management.
  • Explain the importance of embracing a diverse and inclusive community and how those relate to multicultural competency.
  • Define their leadership values and philosophies through self-awareness exercises.
  • Demonstrate how their role as a student leader at Penn State can be applied to their future.
