Panther Leadership Academy

Panther Leadership Academy is a three-day retreat for students interested in an intense leadership development experience. The goal of the retreat is to build participants’ confidence in their leadership skills, so they can positively influence their personal communities. Each spring, a group of 80 students is selected to participate in the annual retreat, which is held at a site off campus. Preference is given to students actively involved in leadership in campus student organizations. During the retreat, students are divided into small groups led by a staff facilitator and student mentor. Over the course of the retreat, participants engage in small group discussions, team building activities, skill building workshops and personal reflection. This is a great opportunity to network with other campus leaders and make new friends!

The 2018 Panther Leadership Academy will be held May 2-4, 2018 at the Glisson Camp and Retreat Center in Dahlonega, Georgia. Transportation, lodging, meals and program materials will be provided for all participants. If selected to attend, a nonrefundable registration fee of $40 must be paid online by April 16.

Applications for mentors and participants are currently open. Mentor applications are due on February 23. Participant applications are due on March 30.
