Leadership Institute for First-Timers

What is LIFT?

LIFT is a full day FREE leadership conference for Winthrop students to gain leadership skills, connect with other students and learn more about themselves.

LIFT takes place in the spring semester in the DiGiorgio Campus Center and Owens Hall. LIFT is planned by team of students and advisors.  Best of all, this conference is FREE and open to all Winthrop students.

A video from the 2020 LIFT conference can be seen here.  This video was created and edited by one of our student leaders, Davionne Eddie.  Davionne Eddie is a sophomore Integrated Marketing Communications major.
