Rising Tide Leadership Summit


The 2nd annual Rising Tide Leadership Summit will be held on Saturday, February 16, 2019.


This one-day leadership conference is designed for emerging and current student leaders and will feature sessions on a wide variety of topics related to Tulane University’s Leadership Framework.  The Summit will provide Tulane students with the opportunity to learn from the vast expertise of our faculty, staff, alumni and campus partners to share their leadership experiences with each other and to establish a network of support within the university.

Program will address one or more of the following tenets of Tulane University’s Leadership Framework:

  • A Sense of Possibility
  • Self-Awareness
  • Social Consciousness and Civic Mindedness
  • Empathetic and Reciprocal Relationships
  • Vision
  • Actionable Plans
  • Reflection and Assessment


We are looking to faculty, staff, advisors and graduate students to submit program proposals that address the tenets outlined in the TU Leadership Framework. All programs will run 60 minutes in length with an anticipated audience of approximately 20-30 students per session. Undergraduate students interested in presenting at the Summit will need to partner with a faculty, staff, or graduate student and will be required to submit the proposal together.

If you have questions about the proposal process, please contact Andres Gonzalez at The Summit will continue to be an annual University-wide leadership event that brings together administrators, faculty and students. Your participation in the Summit is essential in accomplishing this goal. Let’s keep the cycle of leadership going!
