Hundreds of students from EKU and other college and university campuses got a GLIMPSE into their potential and future recently at a three-day event on the Richmond campus.

GLIMPSE is an acronym for Gathering, Listening, Igniting, Mending, Persevering, Surviving and Empowering. The eighth annual GLIMPSE Diversity Student Leadership Conference, held Nov. 6-8, largely in the Business and Technology Center, was designed to help students expand their horizons and develop leadership skills.

Guest speakers included Dr. Rodmon King, who teaches philosophy at Hobart and William Smith Colleges, and Dr. Laurie Carter, executive vice president and University counsel at EKU.

Topics of breakout sessions included: “Dealing with Difficult People,” “Cultural Competency: A Student’s Perspective,” “Leadership: Angry Black Woman? I am Not,” “The Lego® Project,” Motivation with Denzel Washington,” “Success with NPHC: Dissecting Leadership and the Black Greek Experience,” “Diary of a Mad Black Man: Exploring Emotional Development through Masculinity,” and “Embracing Your Story: The Making of a Leader.”

The participants also enjoyed a Broadway show at the EKU Center for the Arts.
