Leadership retreats offer graduate students high-touch interactive experiences by which they may develop and hone their personal leadership skills and competencies.

The Leadership Initiative offers two leadership retreats, one each semester, during the 2017-2018 acdemic year focusing on: 1) Introspective Future Visualization, and 2) Team leader and team member effectiveness.

  • Autumn Retreat

    Our first retreat will focus on gaining a renewed sense of what you stand for, where you're headed, and how you will get there. This overnight excursion to beautiful Salt Fork Lodge east of Columbus will provide you with the thinking and visualization time you need to explore, define, and receive "feed-foward" guidance from your peers as you challenge yourself to develop a mindset towards your future.

    • Date: Thursday, October 12 - 13, 2017
    • Location: Salt Fork State Park Lodge & Conference Center
    • More information: leadership@osu.edu
    • Information sessions will be held in early September.
  • Spring Retreat

    Our second retreat will focus on team leader and team member effectiveness. This highly interactive team-based adventure will blend your business acumen with physical challenges that will test your effectiveness as both a team leader and member.

    • Date: Spring 2018
    • Location: TBA
    • Information Sessions: Will be held in January 2018.
