Spirit of Leadership

In 2020 we celebrated our tenth year of Spirit of Leadership with a four-day online series that included leadership learning and reunions with alumni and friends. We extend a hearty thanks to all of our session hosts and participants!

We also invited all Staley School alumni and friends to celebrate the spirit of leadership through the spirit of giving. The investment in leadership matters now more than ever. Students need leadership and support to continue the work of the Staley School. Join us in the spirit of giving today.

Come together for a celebration of all the ways you make your mark in our world. Hear from our director, Mary Tolar, and our community of change makers. Don't forget to grab your drink of choice!

Why Come Back?

"The Spirit of Leadership is the one time each year that I get to reconnect with mentors and peers who are making their mark on our world. I always come away with fresh ideas, inspiration, and lots of laughs." –Shawna Peters, Class of 2012

"Coming back for the Spirit of Leadership allows us to not only re-connect with friends and network with colleagues, but to recharge our motivations through the inspiration of our peers" -Michael Ellis, Class of 2012

"I go back because SLSS was foundational in my current success. Spirit of Leadership is like a family reunion. I go back to thank my moms and to meet my cousins. I will always give back to my family." -Ariel Anib, Class of 2012
