Connections Leadership Conference

Held each fall, the Connections Leadership Conference serves as a networking workshop for campus leaders. Through collaboration, relevant issues are discussed with the intent of making a positive impact on campus and in the community.

The LeaderShape Institute

The LeaderShape Institute is an intensive four-day retreat that provides participants the opportunity for self-discovery, self-reflection and feedback in a community of approximately 60 peers. Not a typical leadership retreat, the Institute is grounded in helping individuals identify the values they hold that lead to making a difference in the communities around them. Through self-assessment, intensive small group discussions, team-building challenges and more, participants will develop a vision for something they care about. By leading with passion, integrity and a healthy disregard for the impossible, participants explore who they are and the impact that they want to have on communities, working towards a more caring, just and equitable society.

Ignite Leadership

The Ignite Leadership Program was designed to engage advanced student leaders in a series of developmental workshops informed by The Leadership Challenge and the Student Leadership Practice Inventory (sLPI). Learn more about the sLPI here. The Leadership Challenge is a guidebook used to inform leaders about the Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership Model and provide resources to help individuals increase their capacity to lead in organizational settings. Participants in Ignite will gain new insights about their leadership abilities and behaviors by receiving 360-degree feedback from their peers, fellow organizational members, mentors, advisors, co-workers and supervisors.
