The People's Institute
SAVE THE DATE: February 12th–14th, 2016!
Sponsored by the Student Leadership Development and the department of Student Diversity and Multicultural Affairs, The People's Institute will be held from Friday, February 12th through Sunday, February 14th, 2016. TPI will be hosted at the Loyola University Retreat & Ecology Campus (LUREC).
TPI aims to empower students to explore and reflect upon the interconnection between leadership and social justice. In the spirit of Jesuit education, TPI is an exciting leadership opportunity for students at Loyola University Chicago. This program is designed to raise awareness, examine privilege and responsibility, engage in self-exploration regarding multiple identities, and learn skills to create positive social change.
The students who are selected to participate in this free experience will have demonstrated self-motivation and a willingness to learn and share about their lived experiences, while engaging in reflection and dialogue with a diverse cross section of our campus. Because the sponsoring departments cover all costs for participants, and there is a limit to how many students can participate, there is an application process. A link to the online application will be posted in early fall semester. Priority applications are due in mid-November. Space is limited so students are encouraged to apply as soon as possible.
