Clifton M. Jones Leadership Workshops

Interested in presenting a Fall 2021 CMJ Workshop? We will open the presentation proposals form on July 1, 2021.

The Jones Center for Leadership and Service is excited to share the Clifton M. Jones Student Leadership Conference has been reimagined and is now presented as a series of leadership workshops! This transition has increased the availability to open-access leadership programming for all Vols and is consistent with our belief that everyone has the capacity and responsibility to be a leader. Each workshop will feature a different speaker from the campus or community, sharing information and helpful tools from a variety of topic areas. In the 2020-2021 academic year, we offered a total of 11 workshops, featuring 12 faculty and staff presenters.
