Student Involvement and Leadership

Take Flight

The Take Flight Leadership Retreat is a full weekend leadership experience designed to build relationships between student leaders on campus. This year, Take Flight will be held August 9 - 11, 2019, at Wilderness Ridge in Camden, OH. The Take Flight Leadership Retreat is a full weekend leadership experience. The retreat will consist of interactive team building and experiential-based activities along with workshops and presentations designed to challenge and engage students in various ways. This year's curriculum will be based on the Social Change Model. This retreat will consist of personal leadership development, team building experiences, networking, and hands-on planning of previously submitted projects. Students will use what they have learned at Take Flight and the student/staff connections they have made to create an action plan for the 2019-2020 school year.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Learn the Social Change Model and be able to articulate how the theory relates to their project
  • Gain self-awareness about their personal qualities, values, and leadership styles
  • Understand how to effectively collaborate with other people and student organizations for a common purpose
