27th Annual LeaderShape Institute

One of the Student Affairs division values states, “We inspire the leadership needed for all individuals to boldly push everyday boundaries while serving others.” For over 25 years, Michigan Tech has hosted the LeaderShape Institute as a way to do just that.

LeaderShape Institute is a four-day retreat that helps students identify their values and gain confidence in their leadership skills through self-assessment, intensive small group discussions, team building challenges and more. By leading with passion, integrity and a healthy disregard for the impossible, participants explore who they are and the impact that they want to have on their communities. 

LeaderShape Institute 2023 will be held Jan. 4-7 at the Ford Center in Alberta, Michigan, just prior to the start of the spring 2023 semester.

Are you a student who is involved across campus? Do you have a passion for a specific cause or concern? Are you still figuring out the direction you hope to pursue in life? We know leaders have a wide variety of experiences and don’t need to hold a position or a title to impact their community.  The program could benefit any student.

Applications are available online now through Nov. 14.
