UMGC invites you to the first annual Leadership At Every Level Conference offering presentations on leadership topics across a range of professional endeavors and organizations.

Conference participation, refreshments for the morning and afternoon sessions, and a buffet lunch are complimentary to those in attendance.


Leadership topics and issues related to both the civilian and military professions are scheduled throughout this one-day conference. Our conference presenters include students, faculty, and community members actively engaged in research on leadership issues relevant to their personal interests and professional accomplishments.


The conference is open to the entire community. We encourage all who are interested in discussing leadership and learning how this could apply to your own professional aspirations and career to attend and participate in one or more conference sessions.
