Leadership Symposium

The Leadership Symposium is the culmination of the multi-year leadership certificate. Students participating in the certificate learn to clarify their personal values and translate these values into action via coursework, student-driven projects and public interest programmes. The annual leadership symposium is an opportunity to celebrate and showcase each student’s distinct experiences and achievements within this experiential program.

Each participant will share about their own personal theory and reflections about leadership that they have developed as a result from participating in the Leadership Certificate programme, and how they plan to use their experience upon graduating from Yale-NUS.
