The Center for Public Leadership welcomes HKS student-generated ideas for independent, one-time events scheduled during the 2019-2020 academic year. Successful event proposals demonstrate impact on the HKS community and alignment with CPL's mission. Event themes might include: leadership development, social innovation, military and veteran leadership, diversity and inclusion, and behavioral insights.

Student leads play an integral role in the planning and execution of selected events, working closely with the CPL events team to bring their offering to the full HKS community.
