About

Students are an integral part of U21 Universities. The Student Leader’s group is a forum for student leaders to share ideas. They provide a student perspective to the U21 network, suggest new ideas, work to strengthen student involvement with U21 activities and collaborate to gain a global perspective.

The 3rd U21 Student Leaders’ Meeting will take place at the University of Connecticut in April 2016. It provides an opportunity for student leaders to meet, with a focus on the theme “Inclusion and Diversity”.
