Campus Philly Stakeholder Newsletter

February 2016

Dear Campus Philly Stakeholder

So many of the students we meet each day are leaders in their fields: academic all-stars, students who have career-building internships every semester, and those who lead student life on campus.


The question we ask them is: how can you lead in Philly? What can you add to our civic, cultural, business communities that will take Philadelphia to a new level? And, how can our leaders help you develop further and think about your future with the benefit of their experience?


The Inclusive Leadership Conference that Campus Philly produces with Temple University engages students in these questions through a powerful all-day conference for students at more than 40 regional colleges and universities. As you read below about the growth of Campus Philly’s staff and board, you’ll also be introduced to a group of leaders – all educated in this region – who exemplify the qualities, commitment, and talent that we help our students to cultivate as well.

Thanks as always for your continued support of Campus Philly,


Deborah Diamond

Inclusive Leadership Conference 2016

Inclusive Leadership ConferenceOn February 13th students from regional colleges and universities convened at the Inclusive Leadership Conference (ILC), an annual event co-produced by Campus Philly and Temple University. This year’s theme, “From Student Leader to Civic Leader,” focused on how students can leverage their on-campus leadership skills to take on civic leadership opportunities in Philadelphia communities.

Students attended 28 workshops covering topics such as creating positive change through engagement, how to inspire others while young, and the four agreements that you make to yourself and the world. Several Campus Philly corporate members led workshops: Allen & Gerritsen, Bancroft, Frontline Technologies, Philadelphia Convention and Visitor’s Bureau, Publicis Healthcare, and Vanguard.

Overall student attendance at ILC has grown from 380 in 2014, to more than 400 in 2015, to nearly 500 students in 2016.

Campus Philly shapes the future of Philadelphia’s leadership through events like the Inclusive Leadership Conference and our Student Leaders Network, student connectors from different regional campuses who take full advantage of being a college student in Philadelphia.

Campus Philly’s career site operates year-round, but the Online Job and Internship Fair sees hundreds more students on the site than a typical week, so it’s a great time for summer internship recruiting.

Skating into Spring

Students at My Philly SummerStudents celebrated the start of a new semester at Campus Philly’s Back to School Skate Night hosted by Center City District at Dilworth Park on January 26. Students from Community College of Philadelphia, Drexel, La Salle, Philadelphia University, Saint Joseph’s University, Temple and many others, dominated the Rothman Rink on the temperate Tuesday evening. Campus Philly helped students make it an exciting evening by creating pre- and post-skate itineraries for students. Many left the rink to warm up inside the Rothman Rink Cabin which offered hot chocolate, coffee, and much more while others explored a new restaurant during Restaurant Week.
