Student Leadership Institute

The Laspa Center for Leadership will host the annual Student Leadership Institute (SLI) this summer, August 16-21, 2020. SLI 2020 was designed with a focus on what it means to lead during turbulent times. The Institute will be conducted in a virtual format, allowing more students to participate than ever before. Explore what it means to be a leader in the age of COVID-19, how to connect despite social distancing, and stay true to your mission when so much is unknown.

All live sessions will be conducted via Zoom. A single registration (below) grants you access to detailed itinerary information and all of the Institute’s programs and resources.
