The Honors Program welcomes students of all ages to submit proposals for its annual LEAD conference, which gives Neumann students, faculty and staff the opportunity to present TED-like talks on topics of their choice. LEAD stands for learning, exchanging, achieving and discussing.
The deadline to submit proposals is March 31. Examples of past presentations and guidelines for the 2021 event are on the LEAD webpage. This year’s conference is slated for Thursday, April 29, with virtual presentations from 2:40 to 4:10 p.m. and virtual posters on display from 4:30 to 6:00 p.m.
“The Honors Program focuses on developing the critical thinking and writing skills necessary not only to your academic success at Neumann, but also to your eventual success in your chosen career,” writes Dr. Richard Sayers, Honors Program coordinator.
“We value the curious mind, the questioning spirit, the searching soul …. We take responsibility for our individual and collective education. We challenge one another to become our best selves, and we do so in a supportive and caring community.”
The LEAD conference was begun by two students in 2012 to bring together students, faculty and staff around the idea of research and presentation. Presentations can be given by any member of the Neumann community, and all talks and poster presentations are open and free of charge.
