The Center for Leadership (CFL) is invested in providing access to experiential education opportunities for students in our Affiliate programs. Our Experiential Leadership Intensive (ELI) is an overnight, two-day, immersive group experience in an outdoor mountain setting that offers challenge and uncertainty. Participants will engage in a leadership reaction course, a critical thinking seminar, and other experiential activities. No previous outdoor experience is required.
