Welcome to Central Michigan University

On behalf of the Leadership Institute and the CMU community, we would like to welcome you to Central Michigan University!  Leadership Safari is the flagship co-curricular program of the Sarah R. Opperman Leadership Institute and a beloved CMU tradition.  

Leadership Safari 2021

Leadership Safari is a three-day guided experience designed to welcome new freshmen and transfer students to CMU.  Students will join a small group led by a Safari Guide.  During the conference each group will complete a challenge course, hear from nationally-known speakers, and engage in dialogue about leadership.  Leadership Safari is the first step to a successful college career!

Registration for Leadership Safari 2021 will open in March.
