This innovative seminar gives students the opportunity to plan and execute an original event or program on or off campus. Each BLUEPRINT 2 adviser will help organize and facilitate a day-long retreat and mid-semester Leadership Institute. Advisers also spearhead weekly committee meetings where students are challenged to demonstrate their initiative, social consciousness, and global awareness by promoting positive change in the community.
