About the Program
The Multicultural Student Leadership Conference (MSLC) is a weekend program that allows participants to learn about leadership through interactive sessions, student panels, and collaborative projects. They will be given an opportunity to see a little of what college life is like by staying in the GC residence halls, interacting with current students, and eating at the cafeteria. Student participants will leave with strengthened leadership skills and gain a deeper understanding of how the GC liberal arts mission enhances leadership.
Students must be nominated by a school administrator and complete a brief application in order to be selected to attend. Information on the nomination and application process is below. Space for this event is limited and there will be no cost for students who are chosen to attend. This program has been designed primarily for African American, Latino/Hispanic, and other underrepresented students.
