The Institute is a four-day interactive training retreat provided in partnership with LeaderShape and Illinois State University. It is an intensive experience that creates a community that challenges participants to lead with integrity while working towards a vision grounded in their deepest values. The Institute weaves together concepts of community, inclusive leadership, vision, and integrity to help participants explore not only what they want to do, but who they want to be.

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 Saturday, December 15, 2018, and return on the afternoon of Tuesday, December 18, 2018. More specific information will be provided to selected participants at the orientation sessions.
