Student Scoop – November 2, 2022

LeaderShape Institute 2023 Applications Open!

The LeaderShape Institute is back for its 27th year at Michigan Tech and YOU could join the community of over 1,000 alumni who have participated in this life-changing leadership retreat!

Applications are open now for the four-day Institute which will be held January 4th-7th at the Ford Center in Alberta, MI. Not a typical leadership retreat, the Institute is grounded in helping individuals identify the values they hold that lead to making a difference in the communities around them. Through self-assessment, intensive small group discussions, team-building challenges, and more, participants will develop a vision for something they care about. 

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 communities working towards a more caring, just, and equitable society.

Sixty students will be selected to participate in this year’s Institute. Apply by November 13th to be considered. More information, including the application link, can be found on the Student Leadership and Involvement website.
