For Sophomores and Juniors:
The LeaderQuest Program 2011 is a semester-long leadership development program that features interactive workshops, guest speakers, a retreat, and a mentor relationship. All sophomores and juniors studying at the University of Minnesota are eligible to apply. Students will learn about the tools of becoming a successful leader and more importantly, about themselves. LeaderQuest is one of the oldest leadership programs on campus today.
The Tom Burnett Advanced Leadership Program is a highly selective program for seniors (and select juniors who would be unable to participate their senior year). Only 12-15 students are admitted each spring. This is a great opportunity for you to recognize the students you feel far exceed average. We encourage you to notify the students you have nominated and let them know that they are well deserving of this honor. Once we receive your nominations, we will contact the student(s) and invite them to apply and interview for the program.
Participants will explore and enhance their leadership abilities through the study of advanced leadership topics such as negotiation, networking, creating change in the workplace, risk-taking and courage, working in a global environment and many more. Students will meet together for 8 weeks in the spring semester. Each participant will be paired with a first-year student to mentor, as well as a job coach from his/her chosen field.
Nominate a student online. (If you do not know all of the information to fill in the fields that is ok. Simply fill in as much as you know.)
