FAQs

Sponsor? Advisor? Student? What do these titles entail as part of L3?

An advisor is a Student Affairs professional who plans to attend the L3 conference along with the students from their Institution. The advisors will have their own unique sessions and activities to attend, but some will also overlap with their students for those shared experiences. These shared experiences will help with the post-conference mission of making the student goals they create a reality within the following year. Advisors and students are encouraged to meet regularly to ensure steps are being made toward accomplishing their goals. You are welcome to send as many advisors as you like. For more details on what you could expect as an advisor, check out the Advisor Track page.

Sponsors are Institution professionals who “sponsor” a student to attend.  Through their department or involvement on campus, they find emerging leaders that they believe could benefit from attending. They are the key liaison between the L3 registration team and your Institution; all communications will be sent to them to disperse to the student(s) or student(s) and advisor(s). They will also be responsible for registering their team.  A student(s) advisor and sponsor can be one in the same, but if you have a group of advisors attending- only one needs to be designated as the sponsor.

Is the entire program mandatory?

How will I receive my L3 Summit materials?
The mailing address for each participant will be collected during registration and all necessary materials (i.e. t-shirt, workbook, etc) will be mailed the week before the Summit.

How should I prepare for the L3 Summit?
Ensure you have access to reliable internet in a quiet space where you can dedicate your attention to each L3 Session. Participating from a laptop or tablet is ideal with space to have your workbook and writing utensils with you. Each day will consist of a variety of speakers, small group breakouts, activities, and more. Joining from a phone or busy location will detract from your experience is not encouraged.

What is the Legacy Project?
A Legacy Project is a way for students to improve their school or organization. These endeavors should be structured so they are not just one-off events, but rather leave a lasting effect that will persist even after you move on from your school. For example, if you were in an Ecology Club, you wouldn’t want your Legacy Project to be organizing a day of picking up trash; instead, a Legacy Project would be establishing a community garden on campus, or perhaps setting up single-stream recycling at your school. While you are at the Summit, you will receive guidance to develop your ideas into a realistic, achievable course of action.

How should I prepare for my Legacy Project?
Talk to the other members of your student organization! Try and figure out how you and your group want to leave your mark on your school. If you come to the L3 Summit with a problem already in mind, you will have more time to work on ways to achieve it!
