We are on our way to the Student Diversity Leadership Conference in St. Louis, MO! This opportunity truly reflects the dedication of each student to advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion.

The SDLC promises to be a transformative experience, providing a platform for students to cultivate leadership skills, engage in meaningful discussions, and gain valuable insights into promoting diversity and inclusion within our community.

We look forward to sharing our journey to the SDLC with the NEIA community!
