Mission Statement

The Yale NROTC Leadership Conference seeks to bring together students of military and civilian backgrounds in order to inspire early cooperation and understanding between both groups while cultivating the tools, skills, and strategy for successful leadership.


The Yale NROTC Leadership Conference seeks to bring together leaders in their fields and students from universities around the country to discuss what role leadership has in a rapidly changing world and to allow for students to learn and improve upon leadership and character development. The Yale NROTC Leadership Conference is the premiere leadership conference in the Northeast and provides a unique forum to facilitate discussions amongst students, academics, and professionals from a wide variety of backgrounds and fields regarding relevant topics in leadership and the military. The conference is run and sponsored by the Yale NROTC Undergraduate Assocation, an organization run by Yale College students.

The conference will include a panel on national security policy and leadership, two skills workshops focusing on a specific leadership or management technique, a concluding simulation, and special events for conference attendees. The content of the conference will be tailored to a general audience rather than a purely military one and ultimately is an opportunity to learn from military, academic, and business leaders.

This year’s theme, “Leadership in Motion,” focuses on using the context of current political and military affairs to give conference participants dynamic and effective leadership and management tools that they can use throughout their education and career.

This year’s conference is Friday, February 12th and Saturday, February 13th, 2016 at Yale University.

Dear Class of 2018,

It is 10:30 P.M. on Monday night. It is raining outside and buzzing with excitement in the Exley Science Center Lobby where I am taking in the vibe of this time of the school year. Several students dressed in festive colorful costumes, capes, and masks just skipped through the lobby joyfully tossing candy and spreading the joy. The Office of Residential Life has set up a table of free coffee and snacks.

Whether you are alone in your room or in one of the bustling common spaces like the one I am in, you are likely writing a paper or studying for one or more exams at this time. As your dean, I wish you all the best and I want to share a few tips to make it through this hectic time of year.

  1. Pace yourself

If you have several papers and/or exams ahead, it is unrealistic and unwise to hold multiple consecutive “ALL NIGHTERS.”

  1. Eat healthy snacks

Moderate your intake of caffeinated beverages and sweets. Opt instead for apples, bananas, power bars, and nuts.

  1. Move your body

Pay attention to the length of time you spend in a particular location. Move every couple of hours, stand up, walk around, stretch, and maybe even change your location.

  1. Practice stress management.

Pickup a stress ball or a jar of Play-Doh from one of the Study Break tables on campus or the WesWell Office.

Remember – you are surrounded by resources. If you need to talk to someone, don’t hesitate to drop-in to see me, your Class Dean.

Very truly yours,

Dean Thornton

Subject: How to participate in West Out-Loud, Theater Department Faculty Production for Spring 2016

Wes Out-Loud
Stories of Place: A Site-Specific Auditory Journey
Theater Department Faculty Production for Spring 2016

Wes Out-Loud: Stories of Place is a site-specific auditory performance piece that is conceived and created for the Wesleyan campus through collaboration between theater students and Professor Marcela Oteíza. Wes Out-Loud invites you to experience Wesleyan as a scenographic space by inserting new narratives into everyday sites. Through the juxtaposition of place and stories, we hope to bring forward the richness and diversity of the students of our campus, to promote inclusiveness, and to give space to voices that are usually not heard.

This production is an invitation to re-think and re-engage with our campus: Considering the institution and its physical context; location and architecture; its history; institutional and individual narratives; and how they affect our daily lives and our social interactions.

We will be creating a journey through specific places of our campus, into which we will intervene new narratives (students stories). Through which, we will be able to bring to light the richness of the students of this campus and, thereby, promote inclusiveness and provide space to voices that are not usually heard. 

The process for this piece will be through collaboration between a group of nine to twelve students (who will register for a full credit of THEA: Performance Practice) and the project director (Prof. Marcela Oteíza). The students participating in the course will decide upon specific places and modes of interventions through group discussions, rehearsals, and aesthetic approach. The students will perform and/or create each intervention.

If you would like to participate in Wes Out-Loud: Stories of Place, as a collaborator, please submit your story as the mode of audition (see attached form). If selected, you will add THEA Performance Practice under Prof. Oteíza during Drop/add in the spring.

There are also other ways to participate, such as Production Assistant, running crew, ASM, and so forth. If you are interested  please contact Rebecca Foster, Theater Department technical director at rfoster01@wesleyan.edu.

If you have further questions, please email Professor Oteíza at moteiza@wesleyan.edu, Ali Jamali (Assistant Director) at ajamali@wesleyan.edu or Eva Lou (Stage Manager) ylou@wesleyan.edu
