Program Proposal

Clifton M. Jones Student Leadership Conference & MLK Day of Service

Program Proposals are now being accepted through Dec. 1! Please submit your proposal at the bottom of this page.


If you are a graduate student, faculty, and staff from all areas of the university as well as professionals from the greater Knoxville community, we would love for you to present a program proposal on a leadership or service related topic of your choice! Highlights from previous years include “The Hunger Games: Lessons in Leadership and Social Change,” “Lost in Translation: Understanding and Communicating with Different Personality Types,” and “The Toughest Job You’ll Ever Love: Peace Corps.”

Students will attend three breakout sessions throughout the morning (detailed schedule is below).  You are welcome to choose whichever session fits best with your schedule. If you are interested in presenting, please submit a brief presentation submission form between the dates of Nov. 1- Dec. 1. We will let you know the status of your proposal by Dec. 9 at the latest.
