Fighting for affordable & accessible higher education for all Oregonians since 1975.

The 2019 Northwest Student Leadership Conference will take place February 16-18 at the Holiday Inn Salem.

The Northwest Student Leadership Conference (NWSLC) is the oldest student- led, leadership conference in the Pacific Northwest. The conference provides dozens of workshops specifically designed to develop and engage student leaders and provide them with organizing and advocacy skills they can bring back to campus. The Northwest Student Leadership Conference provides a politicizing, engaging space for students to gain valuable tools that allow them to become better leaders, organizers, and social justice advocates. NWSLC is made possible each year with the support of the Oregon Student Foundation.
