Student Activism Conference 2012

On Saturday June 30, 2012

What you will learn

Building and sustaining your Campus Organization

One Day (3 Hours), FREE (Meals included)


Building a solid, effective, and well-branded campus organization is no easy task. For pro-life students it can be even more difficult; jumping over the hurdles of hostile administrations, unhelpful Student Government Associations, and combative opposition activists, all takes a little bit of know how. Fortunately, jumping over these hurdles is a specialty of the Leadership Institute's Campus Leadership Program. Join our Regional Field Coordinator, Craig Holland Dixon, a veteran campus organizer, for a crash course on building up your campus organization.

In this school you will learn effective techniques for establishing and building your own campus organization. Topics covered include:

  • The real nature of politics on your campus
  • Recruitment and building your organization
  • Building influence on campus and in your community
  • Activism ideas and techniques
  • Fundraising and finances
  • Internal organization
