The ADEA Student Diversity Leadership Program (ADEA SDLP) was launched during the 2014 ADEA Annual Session & Exhibition. The program provides students from diverse backgrounds, and those with an interest in issues related to diverse communities, the tools to identify appropriate professional mentors, embark and build on their leadership styles, gain tools for being successful in dental school, and network with one another to build the foundations of a dental student partnership.

ADEA requests that each dental school nominate two students who have demonstrated an active commitment to diversity and inclusion within the dental school or wider campus community to attend the 2018 ADEA SDLP from March 16–18, 2018, in Orlando, FL. Students who have never participated in the ADEA SDLP program are preferred.

Since the first ADEA SDLP meeting attendance has nearly doubled, growing to 80 participants during the 2017 ADEA Annual Session & Exhibition in Long Beach, CA. 

This year, we hope to bring students together from all backgrounds and encourage dialogue about critical topics that current and future dental professionals face.

Submit the names and email addresses of your nominees to diversity@adea.org by Friday, Jan. 26, 2018.

Program alumni who are attending the 2018 ADEA Annual Session & Exhibition are welcome to join us for the SDLP networking reception on March 16.
