LeaderShape is: Six intense days of dialogue and interactive self-discovery in a supportive Learning Community. The LeaderShape Institute® challenges participants to lead with integrity while working towards a vision grounded in their deepest values. Participants explore not only what they want to do, but who they want to be.

Dynamic, challenging, and exciting, the week is intended to produce a breakthrough in the leadership capacity of participants — benefiting them individually, as well as their respective communities and the organizations they will go on to lead and serve in the future.

Join us each month to discuss a different area of leadership and to meet peers who share the same interests on campus. These leadership hours are drop in and a la cart - as in, when you come is up to you and there are no prerequisites to attend one. The Fall Leadership Conference and Catalyst Program will require registration (closer to the event dates). Keep checking back for updates and information.
