Engage with complex topics. Bring renowned speakers to campus. Facilitate discussions that move thought forward. At Principia, student-led conferences are an opportunity for students to develop leadership skills, coordinate a full three-day conference, and dive deeper into topics of interest. The conferences run with the help of a team of students who direct, design, and market, as well as reach out to speakers and coordinate their talks and visits to campus. Both the Public Affairs Conference and the International Perspectives Conference are annual, student-led events which investigate global issues relevant to every student’s life and career.
“By working on the Public Affairs Conference, I got to interact with ambassadors, leading authors, and thought leaders while addressing global issues. It also developed my confidence for job interviews and interactions with senior executives.”
