ABOUT THE CONFERENCE:

The Leadership Institute is the premier recruitment conference for public HBCU students. For the past decade, this four-day conference has given talented future leaders a unique professional development experience. A carefully selected group of students are brought together with some of the nation’s top executives for leadership training, career management, life skills, development and recruitment opportunities. One of the main components of the Leadership Institute is the Recruitment Fair, where students meet with over 60 companies and government agencies offering job and internship opportunities.

Surveys, student case studies, and feedback from conference sponsors reveal that the Leadership Institute is having a tremendous impact on our students. In addition to the conference, students have the opportunity to attend other events taking place during the weekend, including the 26th Anniversary Awards Gala.
