The ability to become a leader within a diverse multicultural community has become increasingly important in today’s world.

The 2023 ALANA Multicultural Leadership Conference will take place between September 28 - October 1, 2023

The ALANA Multicultural Leadership conference was created to showcase multicultural organizations impact on campus, while providing programs for student leader development, appreciation of diversity, and the importance of being an engaged student on campus, in preparation for your career, upon graduation and becoming an alumni.

By engaging in the ALANA Multicultural Leadership Conference students acquire a stronger knowledge and deeper understanding of many cultures. This experience allows students to recognize the importance of inclusion through learning about the rich diversity of our campus community and multicultural organizations. Student leaders, alumni, faculty, staff members, volunteers, along with professional speakers and performers come together to facilitate these events making it one of the most unique conferences at SUNY Oswego.
