This event is a two-night retreat off campus where students can focus on the leadership skills required to be an effective community organizer and social justice activist. During the retreat, the entire group will participate in a series of educational sessions and discuss issues as a large group, as well as in smaller, informal conversations.
The Social Action Leadership Retreat will help any Ithaca College student develop skills and knowledge to drive positive social change for more socially just communities. No matter the issue or cause you are advocating for, it takes leadership to create change. All Ithaca College students belong to a multitude of different cultures including areas of ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religion, socioeconomic status and many more. Therefore, we are looking for a group of people that come from many different cultural backgrounds, including those in the “majority.” Every Ithaca College student is eligible and highly encouraged to apply!
