LeaderShape Institute

In partnership with Fraternity and Sorority Life, the center hosts a session of the Institute, a LeaderShape program that challenges participants to lead with integrity while working toward a vision grounded in their deepest values. Participants explore not only what they want to do, but also who they want to be. During the week, participants will have an opportunity to meet and work with more than 140 students from diverse backgrounds, as well as create a personal vision—an individual commitment to creating a positive change in the world. The Institute is designed to provide an environment that encourages personal leadership development. Due to our wonderful support and sponsorship, attending the Institute is no cost to participants.
