Institute Highlights:

The class is limited to a select group of emerging leaders offering opportunity for collaboration and an enduring network of support. Approximately 35 people will be accepted.

A fair amount of preparation work is required. Participants will be asked to read several books, to submit a personal leadership challenge, and to take a 360 degree assessment of leadership skills prior to the Leadership Institute.

The Institute will be held at the ICI Building, on the University of Minnesota Campus in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Travel and hotel accommodations are at the expense of the participant. There will be a group block held at the Graduate hotel for a competitive rate plus taxes and fees. That information will be added here once finalized.

The Spring Leadership Institute will begin Sunday, 5/5 at 4:30 pm and will end around noon on Friday, 5/10.
