LeaderShape® Institute at Meredith College – May 14-17, 2019
This May Meredith College will host a session of the LeaderShape® Institute, in collaboration with the national non-profit organization LeaderShape®.

The LeaderShape® Institute is a highly interactive, energizing, four-day leadership development retreat with intentional self-discovery and a call to make a difference in the community. At the Institute, students learn to lead with integrity while working towards a vision grounded in their deepest values. During the Institute students participate in interactive workshop sessions, small group discussions, and team building exercises to explore not only what they want to do, but who they want to be as a leader!

The Institute will take place in Fort Caswell at Oak Island, N.C. from Tuesday, May 14 to Friday, May 17, and is open to rising sophomore, junior, and senior students. Round-trip transportation, lodging, and meals during the Institute are included with a $100 participant fee. Financial assistance is available upon request.
