'Canes LEAD is a one-day leadership conference for UM students that
increases awareness of real-world leadership concepts and emphasizes the
development of one's leadership potential. Attendees will also have the
opportunity to join breakout sessions that will encourage interaction,
discussion and questions relating to life issues, educational initiatives
and issues relevant to the unique world in which we live. Through these
sessions, current and emerging UM leaders will cultivate leadership skills
that can benefit them in all aspects of life. This invigorating summit will
provide an invaluable platform from which community leaders, professors, and
professionals will disseminate ideas and expertise that will enable UM
students to develop new skills and grow as a leader.
