Transportation from campus, meals, activity materials, and sleeping accommodations will all be included. Thanks to generous alums of the program, this year we are able to provide all students with a fee waiver to attend The Institute for no charge. Students must attend an orientation session to be eligible for the fee waiver. Any student who fails to attend an orientation will be placed on the waitlist and replaced with a new participant.
Student participants will depart from Illinois State University on the morning of Monday, May 15, 2017, and return on the afternoon of Saturday, May 20, 2017. More specific information will be provided to selected participants at the orientation sessions held in April.
Individual and corporate sponsors are currently being sought to support LeaderShape®. Contact Leadership and Community Connections at LCC.DOS@IllinoisState.edu to get connected with a staff member in the office.
