The call for proposals for the Lancer Leadership Series winter conference is now open.
The Winter Conference explores the theme “Leadership on the Commons.” Many student leadership initiatives are collaborative — learning about leadership on the commons can be the spark clubs need to get their club activities rolling.

On Friday, Jan. 12, conference participants learn about Remix Culture and the origins of the Creative Commons Organization through a screening of the movie RIP: A Remix Manifesto.
