American Multicultural Student Leadership Conference

Organized by and for students, the annual American Multicultural Student Leadership Conference (AMSLC) provides a forum for students of color and students from economically disadvantaged backgrounds to caucus around issues of diversity and celebrate their achievements.  At AMSLC, students participate in lively discussions, hear inspiring speakers, and develop networks in order to foster leadership and excellence.  AMSLC provides students the opportunity to:

  • Present their work in undergraduate research, scholarship, and creative expression;
  • Interact with peer role models, faculty, staff, and administrators;
  • Gain leadership and academic knowledge and skills to prepare them for future opportunities; and
  • Engage with others within and across cultures.

Student presentations consist of written works, posters, exhibits, or performances in the following categories:

  • Research
  • Creative Writing
  • Performing Arts
  • Visual Arts

AMSLC, initiated in the 1980s, is annually hosted by various University of Wisconsin System institutions. UW-La Crosse hosted the 33rd Annual American Multicultural Student Leadership Conference on March 31 – April 2 2017.
