The Student Leadership Conference is an annual leadership development program focused on promoting leadership development among students at the University of San Francisco. The conference aims to be relevant to the needs of the student leader community from year to year through the development of the conference theme and by directly involving student leaders in the planning process. 

Each year, students have the opportunity to apply to become part of the Planning Team and serve in specific roles that oversee committees. This year, there are 4 students serving on the Fall 2020 Planning Team with help from 2 Advisors.
