Leadership Development

Center for Diversity and Inclusion Student Leadership Retreat

Students will enhance their understanding of other people through the lens of personal identity development, learn about the experiences of people in other identity groups, and explore various topics on diversity and social justice.

This one-day retreat provides students the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of differences, learn how to effectively address complex issues, and learn how to cultivate a safe and inclusive environment. Students will also have the opportunity to build connections, develop new skills, cultivate their passion, create social change, explore identity, and lead consciously.

This retreat is open to all students at Michigan Tech. Membership in a student organization is not required.
