LeaderQuest 2011 Undergraduate Nominations
The LeaderQuest Program 2011 is a semester-long leadership development
program that features interactive workshops, guest speakers, a
retreat, and a mentor relationship. The program is run by the LEAD-UP
Office in Appleby 209. The applications are open to all sophomores
and juniors studying at the University of Minnesota. Students will
learn about the tools of becoming a successful leader and more
importantly, about themselves. LeaderQuest is one of the best and
oldest leadership programs on campus today.
Students can fill out the application available at http://www.lead.umn.edu/leaderquest/index.html. A faculty nomination is not required. However, students who have a faculty member who support and recommend to the program definitely have an edge when the selection process occurs in mid October. There is no specific documentation that needs to be completed to recommend a student. A simple email from a faculty member who indicates their recommendation for a student is sufficient. It is the faculty member's decision whether to elaborate about their experience and opinion about the student(s) they are supporting.
To nominate a student or learn more about the program please contact Nick Kranowski at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 612.559.1040.
The applications are due: October 8th, 2010.
