Wildcat Leadership Challenge

The School of Leadership Studies is inviting all K-State students to apply for Wildcat Leadership Challenge from Feb. 28 to March 3. 

Wildcat Leadership Challenge is four-day intensive leadership development experience held each spring at the Rock Springs Retreat Center outside of Junction City. Participants (open to any K-State student) will engage in both large group and small group environments around topics such as diversity, inclusion, leadership styles, service learning, personal strengths, and adaptive leadership. Participants will be divided into learning communities and will be facilitated by Junior and Senior Expedition Leaders, who will facilitate team building and deeper levels of discussion. The theme for Wildcat Leadership Challenge is “The Courage to Lead”. 

The deadline for applications is Feb. 21. Lodging and food will be provided on site at the Rock Springs 4-H Center. Students interested may apply online at the School of Leadership Studies website, http://www.k-state.edu/leadership/programs/leadershipchallenge.html
