UCI Dean of Students

All-University Leadership Conference

Section 1

The All-University Leadership Conference is the cornerstone of UCI's leadership development program. Established in 1984 by Executive Associate Dean of Students Randy Lewis, the conference was re-named the Randy Lewis All-University Leadership Conference upon his retirement from UCI in 2006.

This annual program involves approximately 250 emerging and established student leaders representing the full diversity of campus organizations and interest groups. These student leaders are joined by members of UCI’s executive management group, key faculty leaders, and administrative staff for an engaging and intensive leadership weekend. Conference offerings include workshops on leadership theories, principles, and concepts. In addition, contemporary campus political, social, and cultural issues are addressed. The conference includes plenary sessions, panels, workshops, and small group case studies. The Randy Lewis All-University Leadership Conference is held at the beginning of the Fall Quarter so that the dialogue created at the conference can be built upon throughout the academic year.

  • Established in 1984.
  • This program is the only one of its kind among the University of California campuses.
  • UCI's Chancellor and other campus executives have participated in this program since its inception.
  • The number of conference “alumni” exceeds 7,500 students.
