What Is SLU?
The mission of Student Leadership University, or SLU, is to develop and equip student leaders to think, dream, and lead. The purpose is to instill future tense thinking; character-driven decision making; ownership of biblical values; and a commitment to influence through service.
I attended SLU this past summer as a parent volunteer. I was very impressed with the SLU program and would encourage parents to consider this opportunity for their students. While there was a lot of fun in the theme parks, the focus of this week is gospel-centered leadership. This conference allows students the opportunity to hear from business industry leaders on how to lead with a Christ-like and Christ-centered focus. The seminars are packed with tools and insight on leadership principles - the students are encouraged to embrace the personality and leadership style that God blessed them with and to go make a difference making the most of their strengths and passions. The students gain unique opportunities to learn about individual leadership style, decision-making, goal-setting, and time management - all through the lens of a Christian worldview. This week will truly challenge your student to think, evaluate, dream, set goals, and lead right where they are.
