LEAD culminates in the presentation of student projects, developed in elective modules, at the annual Student Leadership Exchange (SLX). The 9th annual SLX will take place in April 2022. SLX provides students an opportunity to present their projects and research to entrepreneurs, visiting professors, experts in their fields, IMSA faculty, state legislators, and most importantly each other. SLX functions much like an academic conference focusing on youth leadership, bringing awareness to social issues from around the world.

Connected to SLX is the long-standing tradition of the Hollister lecture, an annual lecture series sponsored by the family of one of IMSA’s former faculty Dr. Bernard Hollister. The Hollister Lecture series aims to inform students about various social issues and topics in student leadership.
