Leadership Institute

The Annual Leadership Institute is a conference-style day centered on leadership development founded on six learning outcomes as set by The Council for the Advancement of Standards (CAS) in Higher Education. We feature two engaging keynote speakers, and participants also have the opportunity to choose from 14 breakout sessions designed for new, intermediate, and advanced leaders. These sessions will be designed to help students connect with material that is most applicable to their current needs. Presenters range from student leaders to faculty to guest speakers.

Participants who attend the full day will receive a certificate of completion. A valid MSU ID will be required for check in on the day of the Institute. Next Year's Institute is tentatively scheduled to take place on Friday, April 6th, 2018. Please check back for more information as the date draws nearer.
