Event Description

2018 National Leadership Symposium
July 16-19
University of Tampa

Leadership and Democratic Engagement: The Role We Play and Messages We Send

What is the connection between leadership education and democratic engagement? How does leadership education contribute to a just, equitable, and democratic society? What does this look like in theory, and what does it look like in practice? In what ways does leadership education advance dominant narratives that are harmful and disempowering to some, and how do we actively reshape theory and practice to be more inclusive, diverse, and empowering?

 We welcome leadership educators to join this crucial conversation at the 2018 National Leadership Symposium (NLS). In its 30th year, NLS is an intensive, interactive, and intimate opportunity to connect with noted scholars and practitioners around current topics in leadership. The 2018 theme, “Leadership and democratic engagement: The role we play and messages we send,” is a critical, reflective, and practical examination of the intersection of leadership education and democratic practice. Participants should come prepared to invest in the community we build, in the dialogue we have, and in the critical self-reflection we support one another in.
