American Multicultural Student Leadership Conference



The annual American Multicultural Student Leadership Conference (AMSLC), initiated in the 1980s, is hosted by various University of Wisconsin campuses to provide a forum for multicultural students to network and caucus around issues of diversity. It also offers opportunities for these students to gain leadership skills through participation in seminars, workshops, and plenary sessions; as well as interacting with role models, e.g., keynote speakers, workshop presenters, and UW System administrators and faculty/staff members.

In addition, students are given the opportunity to submit papers/artworks for presentation in a number of categories (e.g., creative writing, visual arts, film, research, performance, etc.). Presentation styles include oral, poster, art display, or performance.

For more information and to submit an entry/abstract for presentation at the 2013 AMSLC conference, please go to www.uwrf.edu/EquityDiversityInclusion/AMSL. For more information regarding UWM student participation at the conference, please contact Warren Scherer at 414.229.7235.
