On Tuesday, May 3, Oakland University welcomed, approximately 300 students and school administrators from the 28 Oakland County school districts for the seventh annual Student Leadership Conference.

The conference, organized by the Learning Achievement Coalition-Oakland (LAC-O) and Oakland University featured a daylong series of educational breakout sessions focused on creating a positive learning environment for students. The purpose was to improve achievement for all students, while eliminating achievement gaps wherever they exist.

This year's conference theme was The Winner In You, and the keynote speaker was Janelle Bechdol. Faculty, staff and students from Oakland University presented several of the breakout sessions. In addition, teachers and students from participating school districts throughout Oakland County, along with Janelle also presented several thought-provoking sessions.

Breakout session topics included: Defining Your Personal Leadership Brand, Student Voice and a Positive School Culture, Building a Better YOU, Digging into Diversity, Leading Courageous Conversations, and Leveraging Social Media.

Contribution from Lisa A. Reeves, Executive Director of Outreach and Program Services.
