Re-Imagining Leadership Retreat

The Re-Imagining Leadership Retreat creates a supportive community-based environment where students reflect upon their individual leadership capabilities, collaborate with a team of other student leaders and observe how they and their team fit into the wider community. At each level of leadership, students will be encouraged to think outside of the box and create novel, innovative ideas to address real life topics that affect students and student leaders at U of T. 

You have the chance to challenge yourself to discover more about the leader within, and to experience leadership in a whole new light. Together, let’s re-imagine leadership.
