When is SOAR?

SOAR will take place on Saturday January 12, 2019. It is a full day conference for current Carleton students held on campus that features a keynote speaker, expert speakers, student leaders, and panel presentations.

What is SOAR?

The SOAR Student Leadership Conference is an annual conference for student leaders at Carleton University. At SOAR, students are challenged and inspired to develop their leadership skills through informative and interactive workshops and presentations.

SOAR provides delegates with many unique opportunities. Students who participate in the conference will be able to:

  • Challenge themselves in new and meaningful ways outside of the classroom
  • Learn how to be an effective leader
  • Understand foundations and theories about leadership and their potential as a leader
  • Enhance their personal philosophy of leadership
  • Attend informative and interactive workshops on a variety of trends and topics, delivered by engaging speakers
  • Engage with a well-known keynote speaker to be announced October 29th
  • Gain valuable experience that can be added to students’ Co-Curricular Record

Our Keynote Speaker 2019

The 2019 Keynote Speaker will be announced on October 29, 2018. Watch the Student Experience Office’s social media accounts for some sneak peeks and the video announcement on October 29.
