Chancellor's Leadership and Development Speaker Series

Chancellor's Leadership and Development Speaker Series

The goal of the Chancellor’s Leadership Development Speaker Series is to create an avenue for students to interact with the university’s leadership, as well as familiarize themselves with the structures, roles, and responsibilities of the university’s administration. This year, the speakers will focus on the role that mentorship has had on their growth, their professional journey as well as share their vision for the future of their department or program. For more information, please contact gradassistant@ucdavis.edu.

**Students who attend at least two (2) of the speaker series events will be entered for a chance to win a professional development gift bag worth up to $100. Light refreshments will be provided at every event. See below for the schedule of events and to register.
