Cardinal Newman Society Student Life Leadership Conference
The Student Life Working Group of The Cardinal Newman Society continues to engage senior Student Life officials of faithful Catholic colleges and universities in conversations and collaboration to promote best practices that strengthen the Catholic identity of their institutions. As part of this collaboration and conversation, this conference will convene on the campus of Ave Maria University, May 21 – 23, 2018. The Newman Society appreciates all the preparatory work for this conference by Kimberly King and her staff at Ave Maria University.
This conference is for senior and middle-management student life leaders of the colleges that participate in the work of The Cardinal Newman Society. Specifically, we hope that each college can at least send its vice presidential-level student affairs leadership along with the dean of students, directors of resident life, residence directors, student activities directors, mental health professionals, campus ministry leadership and staff.
If you are flying, Ave Maria University Student Life Shuttle Service will be available to pick you up from Southwest Florida International Airport in Fort Myers, FL on Monday, May 21st and then assist in returning you to the airport on Wednesday May 23rd. The airport is about 45 minutes from campus. To make this work, please send your flight information to Michael Wright NLT than May 10th. He can be reached at email@example.com. We will contact you with details on where to meet the transportation. Often you can get flights into Fort Lauderdale International Airport at a significantly cheaper price. If you are flying to Fort Lauderdale, you should rent a car and drive over to AMU (about 70 minutes away).
If you are driving, your GPS will direct you to our campus. Signs will direct you to the registration in Xavier Hall Guest House, 5281 Dolan St., Ave Maria 34142.
