The LeaderShape Iowa Institute is an interactive, energizing, and unique experience that builds leadership skills no other program can match. Students spent six days off-campus in Washington, Iowa engaging in an intensive leadership experience that included a highly interactive and energizing leadership enhancement program. The program provided participants with the tools necessary to become visionary leaders. LeaderShape occurs annually before spring semester classes begin in January.

There is NO COST to attend LeaderShape if you are selected courtesy of the University of Iowa Student Government and the Graduate and Professional Student Government. The honor of being chosen to participate is undeniable and the experience will be unforgettable.

The 2019 session will occur Monday, January 7th to Saturday, January 12th. Participant applications will open September 4th and are due no later than October 12th at 5pm. Applications are open to all undergraduate and graduate students: bit.ly/LeaderShape2019
