Blueprints Leadership Conference (BLC)

Twice per year, SIL hosts the Blueprints Leadership Conference.  Blueprints features dynamic speakers and activities that encourage students to learn more about themselves and grow in their abilities as leaders.

The first BLC for this academic year will be held on September 18th, 9am - 5pm.


The Blueprints Leadership Conference kicks off the year for leadership development at UM-Flint. Through Blueprints students will be able to learn and develop fundamental leadership skills such as team-building, time management, finding funding, and general personal development. The Blueprints leadership conference also gives student leaders a chance to connect and plan for the upcoming year.

Every year the Blueprints Leadership Conference is fortunate enough to have a keynote speaker to inspire and energize student leaders. This year's keynote speaker will be Eric Thomas (aka the Hip Hop Preacher). You can watch his inspiring speeches by clicking the images below




StrengthsQuest Workshop

Your StrengthsQuest journey begins with a 30-minute online assessment, the Clifton StrengthsFinder. This assessment has helped more than 7 million people around the world discover their talents.  After you take the Clifton StrengthsFinder, you'll receive a customized report that lists your top five talent themes, along with action items for development and suggestions about how you can use your talents to achieve academic, career, and personal success.   Once you receive your results, you engage in an interactive group session to discuss your results and how those results can be used to enhance your experience as a college student leader.

StrengthsQuest is used at more than 600 schools and universities in North America. More than 1 million people have used StrengthsQuest to gain insights into how to use their talents to achieve academic success, to explore careers, and in leadership development.
