The Student Leadership Center (SLC) selected 60 students this past semester to attend the LeaderShape Institute–a six day immersive leadership training for students, LeaderShape focuses on empowering leaders “to create a just, caring, thriving world”.
LeaderShape Institute is an interactive, energizing, and unique experience that builds leadership skills unlike any other program. All six days are filled with activities that promote self discovery and learning from practical experiences that build leadership perspectives and abilities. For many of the attendees, LeaderShape was the culmination of experiences through involvement in a variety of student organizations such as VOICES and Student Government Association (SGA). The focus of the LeaderShape Institute is to devote time developing a vision that has a positive impact on your campus, community, and possibly even the world.
UC Interim Director Herb Ganey attended and served as a cluster facilitator. “LeaderShape is an amazing opportunity for students. I was amazed at the intensity and impact of the program. I hope to see the visions of our students become reality here at UTSA” said Ganey. Program Coordinator Trey Payne served as a cluster facilitator last year. Applications to attend LeaderShape are distributed in the spring semester for attendance in mid to late May. For more information, contact Jana Schwartz, Program Coordinator at the SLC, 210-458-8694.
