Dr. Mercedes Rowinsky-Geurts invited keynote speaker at LEAP Conference
Dr. Mercedes Rowinsky-Geurts was the invited keynote speaker at the LEAP Conference at Wilfrid Laurier University. Dr. Rowinsky closed the two and half day conference with an inspirational talk on leadership qualities. Designed to prepare incoming first-year students for their academic life at Laurier, LEAP is a weekend conference that gives student participants a jump-start on life at university. Participation in LEAP helps build a foundation for meaningful student involvement, healthy behaviours, academic success, awareness and comfort on campus, personal growth and development, and self-reliance. All this before classes even begin! Organized by the Student Leadership Centre, this year conference was a great success.
