The Reimagining Leadership Retreat provides a thoughtful, supportive community space for students and student leaders to come together to reflect upon the past year and share their dreams about the year to come.
Students will reflect upon their understanding of themselves as leaders, engage in fun and collaborative activities with their peers, and delve into how they might use their leadership skills within their broader communities.
Themes of self-awareness, communication, leadership, and community will be explored.
The 2022-23 Retreat will be held at Hart House Farm on June 23, 2023. Join us while we escape the city and carve out a day to re-imagine leadership together!
All undergraduate and graduate students.
Those who apply must be interested in connecting closely with other student leaders on campus, challenging themselves in a safe and supportive environment, creating innovative programming and diving deeper into key topics that affect students and student leaders at U of T.
How The Program Works
This retreat is application-based. The retreat committee will review all applications and notify successful applicants the first week of June. Students are asked to attend two activities as a part of this program: the retreat itself (all day June 23) and the post-retreat (a lunch on July 5).

Refreshed and fulfilled; the only time in my life that something was advertised and lived up 120% to its promise. Everything was well organized and the team leads were very approachable, relatable, which enhanced the experience very much.

When I applied for this retreat, I didn’t expect that I would have this much fun. This retreat was an amazing experience for me that helped me find my hidden talents and strengths. The team leaders were amazing, and I absolutely loved it!

This retreat made me feel comfortable doing things I never thought I would do! I learned a lot about myself – how others see me and how readily I can make connections with others. I realized that resilience is not a state but a process and it is not about strength but also judgement.
