Summer Leadership Institute

The Summer Leadership Institute is an opportunity for high school juniors to attain advanced leadership skills and college credit in the summer before their senior year.

Acceptance into the Institute enrolls students in LEAD-235: Teambuilding & Leadership, a course in Olivet's leadership minor. Completion of this intensive on-campus learning experience, followed by an online component, earns students three credit hours of coursework to be used toward the leadership minor or elective credit.

The Institute is designed to equip young leaders to be visionaries, live lives of integrity and gain experience in team development, motivation and persuasion.



To register, submit a completed Institute application and required documents by the due date. The total cost for the Institute is $179 (a $1,484 value), which covers the cost of housing and meals.
