Connection to the Conference Theme and the Social Change Model of Leadership
The Griffin Student Leadership Institute helps prepare student leaders at Gwynedd Mercy University to use their knowledge and skills in Merciful ways to lead and to serve as they seek positive change in their communities and globally. The Institute uses as its foundation the Social Change Model of Leadership Development.
