Maria Arbizo, Clare Merlin and Dean Spencer NilesRecently representatives from every student organization came together for a Leadership Summit with Dean Spencer G. Niles in order to share their visions, missions, and plans for the 2014-15 academic year.

With Dean Niles’ participation, leaders of each student organization brainstormed ideas for how they can collaborate throughout the year by offering School of Education students more academic, philanthropic, and social opportunities.

The Leadership Summit will enable all student leaders to come together annually to explore ways to collaborate and grow as leaders.  It will also provide opportunities for students to further their professional development.
