Application Process

UNLV undergraduate and graduate students interested in attending must complete an online application. When the application becomes available online, it is strongly encouraged that you allow enough time to review the application and carefully consider your responses to the essay questions before submitting. Essay questions include: Why do you want to attend this retreat? What does leadership mean to you? What does diversity mean to you?

Applications are carefully reviewed by the staff team. All applicants will receive an email at least one week before the retreat to notify them if they have been selected to attend. Those individuals not selected will be placed on an "Alternate List" in case spaces open up.

  • Individuals that are not accepted to attend can reapply next year.
  • Accepted to attend but no longer can go on the retreat? Any individual who is accepted but cannot attend must notify the retreat organizer immediately.
