Altitude is a student-run leadership conference designed to engage college students in a way that shows the potential they have to reach great heights through continuous leadership education and development. The core philosophy of Altitude is to empower students to take personal responsibility for their leadership development by providing them with resources, strategies and practical skills that will enable them to face new and evolving leadership challenges.
Students will have the opportunity to network with presenters and other participants to understand real world leadership experiences and strategize the best way for a leader to navigate the higher altitudes of leadership development as they ascend to their personal peak of performance!
The theme for Altitude 2012 is
Discovering Your True Leadership Potential: An Exploration of Leadership in Our Ever-Changing World.
This year we hope to highlight certain hot topics in leadership including; Leadership in a Technological Socitey, Ledership in a Diverse World, Being and Ethical Leader in a Changing World and Brainding Yourself in a Globalized World. By examining conventional and unconventional leadership styles, characteristics and roles, students will be able to see the immense value that leadership involvement can contribute to their future individual success and the success of organizations, groups and teams.
Ideally, all Altitude participants will leave with new and enhanced leadership skills that they can immediately put to use on their campuses and in other aspects of their lives.

Office of Student Leadership Development & Leadership Lehigh
The Office of Student Leadership Development utilizes innovative, educational and experiential teaching methods to facilitate students' leadership development. As every individual has the potential to lead, we strive to help all students shape their personal definition of leadership through critical thought and meaningful action.
We do these things to ultimately work toward our vision which is, "to prepare students to be positive examples of leadership excellence and social consciousness in a complex and ever-changing global community."
Leadership Lehigh is a four-year comprehensive leadership program through which students can gain the theoretical background and practical skills necessary to be successful leaders at Lehigh, in their communities, and in their future personal and professional lives. The program consists of four phases of intensive leadership development that focus on skill development, practical application, experiential learning, and self-reflection.
As seniors, Phase 4 members are charged with all facets of planning, implementing, executing and evaluating Altitude. Altitude serves as the culminating group project for Leadership Lehigh members and provides an avenue for them to give back leadership education to the Lehigh community and beyond.
