About Leadership Summit

Leadership Summit is a weekend-long leadership retreat for students interested in having an immersive leadership development experience. The Summit will introduce students to key leadership concepts and the practical applications for every day life. This will be accomplished by utilizing large group sessions and placing students in small groups to process content and form more meaningful connections with peers.
