Leadership Week

This fall, SILD is implementing our third annual Leadership Week! Leadership Week will take place from Monday, November 6 through Saturday, November 11, 2017. A variety of leadership events will occur throughout the week, concluding with the NIU Lead Summit. This week is your opportunity to learn leadership skills, meet other students interested in building their leadership skills, and have some fun! We will also recognize the student(s) who have attended the most Leadership Week events during the NIU LEAD Summit!

Below is a tentative schedule of the events happening during Leadership Week. If you have any questions, contact Josh Symbal, Graduate Assistant for Leadership Development, at or 815-753-6595.
