Conference Archives

With generous support from the UBC Teaching and Learning Enhancement Fund (TLEF) and the AMS Innovative Projects Fund (IPF), and now the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre, the Student Leadership Conference began in January 2003. From the outset, the SLC has been a collaborative initiative of the Alma Mater Society and the University of British Columbia. Since 2003, the SLC has grown from 300 to over 1250 delegates at the 2016 conference.
