Ignite Leadership Institute Participant Registration Fall 2017

Explore your leadership style. Meet new friends. Gain confidence in your skills. Make a difference. Connect with others who want to make the world a better place.

The Ignite Leadership Institute is a six-week experience filled with hands-on activities that allow you to explore who you are as a leader, and gain skills and strategies that can be applied in your everyday lives. It concludes with a formal recognition at the closing reception.
