The Michigan Tech Institute by LeaderShape is Back!

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 — and this year, LeaderShape is back!

LeaderShape Institute 2022 will be held Jan. 4-7 at the Ford Center in Alberta, Michigan, just prior to the start of the spring semester.

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 they want to have on their communities.

Do you know a student who is involved across campus? How about one who isn’t, but has shown you their passion for a specific cause or concern? How about someone who is still figuring out the direction they 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. No matter who they are, how they are involved on campus or what their future goals are — this program could benefit a student you’re connected with.

Are you already thinking of someone? Invite them to apply! Applications can be submitted online today through Saturday (Nov. 17-20).
