This is an excellent opportunity to explore the intersection of diversity and leadership, build community with student leaders from different organizations across campus, broaden horizons and comfort zones, and learn to become change agents on campus and in our communities. Workshops, discussions, and activities will take place in both large and small group sessions.
Students are encouraged to openly share their thoughts and feelings in a safe and welcoming environment. A goal of the retreat is to give students the means to begin infusing the UW-Superior campus with a multicultural perspective and inclusive approach to education. UW-Superior faculty and staff work together to explore the meaning and value of diversity and leadership from a variety of perspectives. The tools students take away from the retreat are valuable for use in on-campus settings and for life beyond the University.
Participation is on a first come - first serve basis. Participant priorities: 1) students who have not previously participated in the retreat, 2) students who have previously participated and have completed an application. Spots not filled by first-time students will be filled on a first come - first serve basis.
New deadline to submit student participant application: Jan. 20, 2015.
