Mission Statement

Now in its sixth year, the Yale NROTC Leadership Conference seeks to bring together students of military and civilian backgrounds in order to inspire early cooperation and understanding between both groups while cultivating the tools, skills, and strategy for successful leadership.



The Yale NROTC Leadership Conference connects leaders in their fields to students from universities around the country to discuss what role leadership has in a rapidly changing world and to allow for students to learn and improve upon leadership and character development. The Yale NROTC Leadership Conference is the premiere leadership conference in the Northeast and provides a unique forum to facilitate discussions amongst students, academics, and professionals from a wide variety of backgrounds and fields regarding relevant topics in leadership and the military. The conference is run and sponsored by the Yale NROTC Undergraduate Association, an organization run by Yale College students. 


Participants will be able to attend an allied officer panel  and three different workshops. The content of the conference will be tailored to a general audience rather than a strictly military one and ultimately is an opportunity to learn from military, academic, and industry leaders.  This year, we will take a close look at the challenges leaders face, and the principles and practices that facilitate leadership in times of adversity. 


This year's conference will take virtually on Friday, April 16, 2021.
