iNSPIRE Conference

iNSPIRE Web Header

This experience is designed to introduce students to the foundations of leadership through the Brave Experience. All workshops are related to leadership and centered  around one of the four domains of the Brave Experience: Learning, Belonging,  Community, and Well-Being. Each workshop will meet one of the learning objectives  of the domains and connect to how this supports leadership growth and development.  

Brave Experience Learning Objectives: 

  • Learning: Support student development and success through engagement in transformative educational experiences in and beyond  the discipline that encourage a self-motivated pursuit of knowledge. 
  • Belonging: Cultivate a sense of inclusion through active engagement and  participation in initiatives that support relationship development, engagement in learning and discourse, and the exploration of pathways  that help in achieving personal and career aspirations. 
  • Community: Engage with others in the mutually beneficial exchange of  knowledge and resources to create and strengthen supportive and  collaborative environments on and off campus. 
  • Well-Being: Encourage students to identify, develop, and practice  healthy habits that promote a sustainable balance of one's mental,  physical, and emotional wellness.

This year's iNSPIRE Conference is taking place on January 20, 2024 from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. The conference is free for students. Please register if you're interested in attending.
