The Emerging Leaders Conference provides an opportunity for Missouri youth to participate in a conference focused on civic engagement and college access. Conference attendees explore and discuss state and local community issues, share and learn from varying perspectives, observe and practice the legislative decision-making process, and then receive guidance and support around the college-planning process. 

The Emerging Leaders Conference is a partnership between the Office of Academic Access & Leadership Development in the MU Division of Inclusion, Diversity and Equity, and the Missouri Legislative Black Caucus.
