The Neumann University Honors Program welcomes students of all ages to submit proposals for its April 28 annual LEAD conference, which allows Neumann students, faculty, and staff 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. The LEAD webpage provides examples of past presentations and guidelines for the 2022 event.
This year’s conference is slated for Thursday, April 28, with presentations from 2:40 to 4:10 p.m. and 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 started by two students in 2012 to bring together students, faculty, and staff around the idea of research and presentation. Any member of the Neumann community can give presentations, and all talks and poster presentations are open and free of charge.
