About this Event  

New this year: Students are invited to join faculty at this event. There will be sessions for both students and faculty, and separate faculty and student tracks. Please see the agenda below for more information.


Learn to develop essential end-to-end aspects of character and leadership education by hearing best-practice strategies and pedagogies, while sharing what works best at your school.

Whether starting a character and leadership education program from scratch or looking to add to an existing program, you will leave with ideas, inspiration, materials, and contacts to take back to your school. Because every school’s approach will differ, ample time will be available to discuss how to adapt the content of the sessions to your school’s specific needs.

• Build a Schoolwide Conceptual Vocabulary

• Nurture Habitual Prosocial Emotional Responsiveness

• Provide Sufficient Experiences and Leadership Opportunities

• Develope a School-wide Scope and Sequence
