Cultural Leadership Retreat

The Cultural Leadership Retreat (CLR) will be held for UNLV students on February 20 – February 22, 2015. This two and a half day retreat presents the opportunity to explore various facets of identity, diversity, and social justice and their relationship to leadership. Participants can expect to go into a deep exploration of their own identity, and to bravely examine the role of power and privilege and how one can use their privilege to advocate social change. During the retreat, the entire group will participate in a series of educational sessions and discussions in large group, as well as in smaller group clusters.

CLR Student Goals

  • Gain awareness and a deeper understanding of diversity, identities, leadership and social justice.
  • Engage in self-exploration of values, beliefs, and preconceptions
  • Understand the Social Change Model and create strategies for positive social change at UNLV.

Online student applications are due by Thursday, February 12 (log into MyUNLV before clicking on the application link)
