Students Selected for Webster University Global Student Leadership Summit

From March 10-13, 2015, thirty (30) student leaders from throughout the Webster University worldwide network will gather on the home campus in St. Louis, MO to discuss leadership and advocacy in this signature event of the University's Centennial Celebration.  

The Summit will provide a unique opportunity for Webster University student leaders to gain knowledge and skills, and create positive change in a global environment. By developing relationships with peers from throughout Webster’s global network, participants will gain a better understanding of the impact student involvement has on students and Webster University worldwide.

58 students from throughout the Webster University network of campuses applied to the Summit. The following 30 students were selected, after an application process that included a review of the candidate’s leadership involvement, work experience, essay, and letters of recommendation from staff, faculty, and fellow students. It is hoped that the student participants will return to their home campus and put to use the skills and knowledge gained during the Summit to improve student life throughout the Webster University network.
