The National Jesuit Student Leadership Conference (NJSLC) is a multi-day conference for all 28 Jesuit colleges and universities throughout the United States.
Sponsored by the Jesuit Association of Student Personnel Administrators (JASPA), a different Jesuit institution hosts the conference every summer. The conference provides student leaders with collaborative opportunities to develop ideas, explore issues, and build stronger leadership skills to better serve their institutions in the Jesuit tradition. NJSLC is comprised of workshops, group discussions, social programming, a day of service, and opening and closing banquets.
This summer our Jesuit institution student leaders will meet again at The College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, MA for NJSLC

This annual multi-day conference is held each summer for student leaders from each of the Jesuit colleges and universities to explore student leadership rooted in Jesuit values. This conference is hosted by the Jesuit Association of Student Personnel Administrators (JASPA). In 1997, the mission statement of NJSLC was adopted: “Student organization leaders collaborate to develop ideas, explore student issues, and build stronger leadership skills to better serve their colleges and universities in the Jesuit tradition.”
The College of the Holy Cross is excited to welcome student leaders and colleagues from Jesuit institutions to Worcester, Massachusetts - the heart of the Commonwealth. NJSLC will be hosted July 26, 2023 - July 30, 2023. More information can be found on the Holy Cross NJSLC website.

History of NJSLC
In August of 1997, at Regis University in Denver, Colorado, students from a number of the 28 Jesuit colleges and their affiliate universities gathered in an effort to improve the leadership at each school. The original purpose of the conference was to improve the student governments at each university. Now, though, the conference includes community service leaders, orientation staffs, resident housing staff members, peer educators, club leaders, and even administrators.
Since its premier, the conference has been bringing together student leaders from around the nation in order to improve our ability to serve our fellow students. The following mission statement was adopted in 1997:
"Student organization leaders collaborating to develop ideas, explore student issues, and build stronger leadership skills to better serve their colleges and universities in the Jesuit tradition."
JASPA's sponsored NJSLC conference continues to grow around its mission statement by helping student organization leaders collaborate to develop ideas, explore student issues, and build stronger leadership skills to better serve their colleges and universities in the Jesuit tradition.
