Leadership Summit House

What is the Summit?

The Leadership Summit is an intense and student leader driven overnight leadership experience.  The Leadership Summit is not like any leadership training that you have engaged in to this point.  R-MC Student leaders will be tackling the big issues that students are confronted with across the country and learn the skills to analyze, frame, and develop solutions that will impact not only R-MC, but higher education across the country.

How is this Different than the Student Leadership Conference?

Conferences are awesome, and the Student Leadership Conference gives students an opportunity to explore issues from some pretty awesome presenters.  However, The Summit is a completely different experience designed to be offered once every four years!  The Leadership Summit is skills based.  The Student Leaders will LEARN and APPLY skills as they are learning.  The skills based learning approach will get you into the mix of doing rather than only listening.

How Can I Attend?

Student leaders from key programs and organizations are nominated, apply, and are selected for the perspectives and skills that they bring to the table.  We are seeking a diverse and highly motivated group of student leaders who want to build relationships across organizations with the goal of exploring and solving the problems students across the country face.

Where and When Will it Be Held?

The Summit will be held overnight from March 23, 2018 – March 24, 2018 at Massanetta Springs Camp and Conference Center in Harrisonburg, VA.  Student leaders will depart at 3:00pm on Friday and will return to campus on Saturday, March 24, 2018 at 4:00pm.  The training will be intense, but it is also designed to have you back on campus to tackle your work and relax a little.

What are the Costs?

The Leadership Summit is free to participants thanks to the generous support of BB&T Leadership Institute and the College. Student leaders housing, meals, and transportation will be provided.
