2020 Spring Leadership Conference
The 2020 Spring Leadership Conference is a one-day program that supports you as a student leader in further developing how to collaborate with others, handle conflict with civility, and skills to help you work with others in developing a common purpose. Attending the conference provides the opportunity for you to participate in one of two tracks: one exploring leadership dynamics (FlashPoint) and the other providing skills to be resilient while holding a leadership position (Forge).

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service
The Dr. MLK Jr. Day of Service is an awesome opportunity for you or your student organizations to come together and serve. This year, on January 20, 2020, UIC has partnered with North Lawndale Community Partners to provide various ways to engage with our neighbors – including a kickoff event at Stone Temple Baptist Church, where Dr. King spoke in the 1960s!

GIVE and Make Mondays Matter
Are you looking for ways to give back? GIVE (Get Involved with Volunteer Opportunities) and Make Mondays Matter are volunteer opportunities that take place once a month with different community partners. GIVE events, taking place the second Saturday of every month (off-campus), and Make Mondays Matter, taking place the first Monday of every month (on-campus), are great ways to give back in a meaningful way.
See all opportunities and 2020 dates for GIVE and Make Mondays Matter at http://service.uic.edu/.
