The NIU LEAD Summit

The NIU LEAD Summit is NIU's premier leadership conference. This leadership conference is open to all NIU students; however, conference content is geared toward undergraduate students. Participants have opportunities to attend various workshops related to developing leadership skills, hear from a keynote speaker, and network with other student leaders and staff members. The Summit also features a Greek track specifically designed for student members of Fraternity & Sorority Life.

Our March 2014 LEAD Summit had a record number of participants, and we are currently planning for our fall 2014 Summit. The next NIU LEAD Summit is Saturday, September 20, 2014, in Barsema Hall. Check-in will begin at 8:00am, and the program will take place from 9:00am-4:30pm (times subject to change). For a better understanding of what the March 2014 LEAD Summit entailed, please view the conference program.

Advance registration is required to attend. Registration information will be available in the fall.

This year's sponsors include the Interfraternity Council, Huskie Family Connections, College of Business Passport Program, and Student Involvement & Leadership Development.
