Who is eligible?
All University of Memphis students in good academic standing are eligible to apply.
There are no limitations based upon class level, major area of study, or level of
campus organization involvement. Priority will be given to those students who will
be returning to the campus in the fall. We are limited to a maximum of 60 participants,
so application is competitive.
Where will the University's session be held?
The University of Memphis LeaderShape® will be held at For the Kingdom Camp, which
is located a few miles from the University.
What is my time commitment?
In order to be able to complete the Institute, participants are expected to remain
onsite all six days and five nights of the program. Meals, lodging, and all required
materials will be provided at the site, and the Institute is to be completed in residence.
Transportation to and from For the Kingdom Camp will be provided at the beginning
and end of the week.
How much will it cost me?
The University is making this Institute available at no cost to participants from
the University of Memphis. To put that into perspective, the same training that we
are providing costs about $1500 per person at the national sessions.
What do I need to bring?
All necessary educational materials will be provided as a part of the LeaderShape®
Institute. Prior to the session, all participants will be provided a list of personal
items that they should bring.
What will I be doing throughout the week?
LeaderShape® is intensive, and work will be done individually, in Family Clusters,
and as a Learning Community of all participants. Please take a look at the Curriculum
at a Glance section below for basic highlights from each day.
