This year's theme focuses on ways one’s inner drive can be channeled to create remarkable change through new ideas and action. Dr. Bremley Lyngdoh, a global leader in environmental sustainability, will facilitate summit participants through an engaging and interactive process as they explore ways to “raise the bar” of performance and expectation through initiative and innovation impacting social change. Participants will be inspired and emboldened to lead through passion and commitment to the values that drive them to make the world a better place.

Keynote speaker.Dr. Bremley Lyngdoh is the founder of WorldviewImpact Foundation, a UK-based nonprofit which operates around the world with the aim of promoting environmental sustainability as well as social and economic development through the creation of sustainable livelihoods and the mitigation of climate change.  A true entrepreneur and global citizen, Dr. Lyngdoh will draw upon his unique insight and experience to emphasize the importance of young people bringing new and innovative ideas to the table to become the next generation of leaders the world needs.   


UNF’s own Maria Mark, Coordinator of UNF’s Environmental Leadership Program at UNF’s Environmental Center, will serve as emcee for the day’s event.  According to Maria, “it’s vitally important that our students seize as many opportunities as possible to learn how to successfully translate their ideas into action and become transformational leaders.  The Student Leadership Summit is a wonderful way to empower students with the tools necessary to learn how to go beyond the conceptual to become agents of change”.  


Fostering fun and opportunity, the Annual Student Leadership Summit is packed full of experiential learning opportunities for students, community leaders and volunteers. The UNF Student Leadership Summit is a flagship program of the Taylor Leadership Institute, a department within the Division of Student and International Affairs. Funded through the Student Services Fee, this extraordinary event is free and open to all UNF students. Held each Fall, the Leadership Summit awakens you to the authentic purpose in your life. You'll hear from leaders of all sorts and learn so much about yourself while having lots of fun. The experience will empower you to develop meaningful interactions with community organizations and connect you with "real world" venues to practice leadership on and off campus. Pre-registration is required to attend.  For more information please contact Alison Noonan at or call (904) 620-5934.
