Featured Program: LeaderShape®
The LeaderShape® Institute is a national leadership-training program now in its fifth year as a principal
U of M LEAD initiative. Offered to 50-60 students each spring, it utilizes an integrity-based
curriculum to build visionary leaders who have “a healthy disregard for the impossible.”
Participants are purposefully chosen from varied backgrounds, ages, and levels of
leadership experience to encourage interaction that transverses the University. Students
take part in six days of intensive training at a local camp, culminating the program
with the development and implementation of a personal vision statement for improving
an organization or community.
With the conclusion of LeaderShape® 2011 in May, over 200 U of M students have now completed the Institute over the past
four years. Graduates have started new student service organizations, become Student
Government officers, collaborated with non-profits, and joined local and national
As this number of graduates grows, so will the successes and the impact on our University
and our city and region. The University takes tremendous pride in offering LeaderShape® to students, and with it and our other LEAD programs, we will continue to develop
our next generation of leaders.
