Student Leadership Summit

Each Fall, a group of students participate in a one day interactive and engaging retreat filled with teambuilding, leadership development, and more! Once students complete the Summit, they are eligible to apply to become paid Student Ambassadors for the University. Throughout the year, the group of students will also work together on a particular community service project.
