The People's Institute
The People's Institute (TPI)
Sponsored by the Student Leadership Development and Student Diversity and Multicultural Affairs departments, The People's Institute will be held from Friday, February 7th through Sunday, February 9th, 2014. TPI is 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, and learn skills to create positive social change.
TPI will include interactive sessions, large and small group dialogue, and exercises to develop intergroup relations, understanding of social justice and diversity, and leadership development. TPI is centered on self-identity exploration.
The students who are selected to participate 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. The application process has now closed, however, if you would like to be added to our waitlist, please contact Shannon Howes (director, SLD) at firstname.lastname@example.org or Sadika Sulaiman Hara (director, SDMA) at email@example.com as soon as possible.
