Redhawk Leadership Summit

  • Redhawk Leadership Summit is a free half-day leadership conference open to all students at Seattle University interested in building personal leadership skills. It is a chance for students to get to know other leaders on campus as well as develop their own skills. This year's summit will be on Saturday, March 7th.  Register now!  We're happy to take you registration online until Saturday morning.  We will also have some spaces for walk-ins on Saturday morning.  Stop by the Pigott Atrium to join us.

     We are excited to bring a fun, challenging and educational experience to campus. Most importantly, we believe that by learning together, participants develop a stronger community of leaders.

     This year's theme is Looking from the Inside Out: An Exploration of Emotional Intelligence. We'll explore the ways that emotional intelligence intersects with leadership, and hear from a variety of different speakers.

    A few helpful details to know:

    • The summit is open to ALL Seattle U students.
    • Sessions are facilitated by Seattle U staff, faculty, alumni and students.
    • Registration includes lunch.
    • We ask that participants attend the entire day as sessions build on the content running throughout the day.
    • The program is free, but there is a $20 charge for no-shows
