The goal of the conference is for participants to join the university in promoting healthy living and to find ways to implement healthy living strategies within their own professional and personal lives. This conference will provide an opportunity for participants to:
  1. Gain insights from outstanding leaders in our alumnae, higher education, and business communities regarding:
    • implementing healthy living strategies in their professional and personal lives;
    • cultivating their leadership, knowledge, and skills through their own professional development;
    • building knowledge of emerging issues from the perspectives of public and private sector leaders at the national, state, and higher education levels; and
    • discovering their strengths and using it to rejuvenate their mind, body, and career.
  2. Share their insightful thoughts on issues that the new university president and the Commission on the Status of Women will prioritize and work on in the upcoming academic year.
