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 2017 Panther Leadership Academy will be held May 3-5, 2017 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 17.

We have selected our participants for 2017. If you are still interested in attending this year, you can submit an application online to be added to the alternate list. Alternates will be notified on a rolling basis. The final cutoff for the program is April 28, 2017.
