The University of Colorado Denver Peer Advocate Leader (P.A.L.) Program and The Peer Leader Center invite you to join us for the 1st Annual:

Rocky Mountain Peer Leadership Conference 


About The Event

We invite Colorado students, staff and faculty involved in peer leadership programs to a day of learning, teaching and sharing.

Peer leadership programs include peer mentors, advisors, educators, tutors, cultural ambassadors, and other similar programs. It's time we all get together to share what we know, learn from each other, and celebrate the great work we all do!  

This 1-day event  will include presentations from community leaders, team-building, poster sessions, and interactive leadership workshops and a final debrief session to turn the day's learning into action when you return to campus. 

Come mingle with mentors, staff and faculty to learn from each other, network and share great ideas
