Learners to Leaders
Learners to Leaders
Learners to Leaders (L2L) is a professional networking and leadership development initiative designed to support the educational and career success of college students and recent college graduates from under-represented communities who have demonstrated leadership ability and expressed an interest in continuing their education at the graduate level. The 2014 Learners to Leaders Summit will take place on February 22, 2014.
L2L offers participants an opportunity to meet other accomplished, high-potential students and young professionals from around the region, as well as professors, current graduate students and recent graduate school alumni from a variety of disciplines.
As a longstanding educational leader in Minnesota, St. Thomas is firmly committed to the communities we serve – communities that contribute to the diversity and vitality of the university. Our goal is to strengthen these communities and our programs by engaging high-potential students in an ongoing conversation about the opportunities and benefits of a graduate education.
