Frequently Asked Questions
How do I register?
Registration can be found the the Leadership Summit homepage. Please note that payment is due upon registration (via credit card: $20 GVSU Student and $30 Non-GVSU Student) unless the student is a part of a "group" that is sponsoring the registration fee.
GVSU Students: There are opportunities to attend Leadership Summit at no cost to students through sponsorship by a campus department (for student employees or student leaders) and through the Student Life Fund. Sponsored students will register as a GVSU "group" and will need the registration "code" from the sponoring department/organization. If a student is not sponsored, they may register as an individual and would need to pay the $20 registration fee via credit card online. Contact Kate Thome at 616-331-2345 or firstname.lastname@example.org in the Office of Student Life with any questions regarding sponsorship or group registration.
Non-GVSU Students: If a student's registration fee will be paid by their university/college, they will register as a Non-GVSU "Group." The advisor (or university/college staff member) should contact Kate Thome at 616-331-2345 or email@example.com in advance to create a group code. If a student is not sponsored by their university/college, they may register as an individual and would need to pay the $30 registration fee via credit card online.

What if I missed the registration deadline but would still like to attend Leadership Summit?
You can register for Leadership Summit the day of the event, pending available space. Please be aware that we have a record number of attendees this year and are at capacity. We cannot guarantee day-of registration. If you plan to register on-site, we prefer payment with cash or a check.

We will have several coat racks available in the Kirkhof Center during the event. Anything left here is the responsibility of its owner, as it will not be locked or monitored.
