About Panther Leadership Summit

Since its inception, the Panther Leadership Summit has been a convenient, affordable, and effective means of providing University of Pittsburgh and Pittsburgh Council of Higher Education (PCHE) consortium students with high-quality leadership training and development. The Panther Leadership Summit is open not only to Pitt students, but also to students from other higher education institutions in Pennsylvania.
The summit’s morning program will feature 10-minute leadership development presentations by notable Pitt alumni and friends of Pitt in a dynamic format similar to the TEDx model. You will be given opportunities to network with fellow students and speakers. After lunch, you will have the opportunity to enhance your leadership development skills through 45-minute, interactive workshops presented by Student Affairs professionals, student leaders, and community leaders. Workshop topics will feature the Summit’s five content areas: diversity in leadership, leadership identity, critical thinking skills, leadership theory and communication, and transferable skills for the workplace.
Take advantage of the opportunity to network with and learn from professionals with experience and expertise in student leadership development.
Empower. Imagine. Serve. Inspire.
