LEAD is an academic conference for Neumann University students, staff, faculty and administrators. The goal of LEAD is to establish connections between student and staff who share common interests, with the hope of cultivating working relationships that will help to advance the mission of Neumann University.


What does LEAD stand for?

LEAD stands for Learning, Exchanging, Achieving and Discussing. These are the pillars of all academic works. By learning, we strive to exchange our ideas and opinions with others. By exchanging these ideas, we achieve success in our fields. Once we achieve success, we continue to discuss our works so we can pass our knowledge to the next generation.


What is the Format?

LEAD follows a format similar to that of the TED conferences. Consecutive sessions will feature three to four presenters, each of whom will have 10 to 15 minutes to speak. At the end of every session, a break will allow the audience to ask questions and to continue the conversation.


When is the LEAD conference ?

The next LEAD conference will take place in Spring 2018, date to be announced.


Who can attend LEAD?

All are welcome to attend this free conference. Lunch is included for all who pre-register.
