Your gift can create opportunities for CMU students to be part of the Leadership Institute. 


‚ÄčThe Leader Advancement Scholarship is the only program of its kind in the nation.  Leader Advancement Scholars complete a four-year leadership development protocol that includes dynamic service learning experiences, involvement in student organizations, formal leadership trainings, and leadership-infused coursework.  Now in its 21st year, the Leader Advancement Scholarship has demonstrated tremendous results: a 96% graduation rate, and 100% of graduates have been enrolled in graduate school, or have secure full-time enrollment within six months of graduation. For members of this cohort, the experience provides leadership learning unmatched in the country and lifelong friendships and networking.  Gifts supporting the Leader Advancement Scholarship provide these opportunities for more Central Michigan University students.

Leadership Safari is five days of deep learning, dynamic speakers, and relationship building.  More than 2,000 new Central Michigan University students join the Leadership Institute before their academic careers begin for this tradition.  The heart of the program is the volunteer staff.  Three-hundred students volunteer for the five days of the program, as well as two weeks of training.  These Safari Guides, Team Runner, and C-Team members create strong connections to CMU, prepare students for success, and become mentors and friends.  Gifts to Leadership Safari will provide scholarships to these exceptional volunteers.
