The Reimagining Leadership Retreat provides a supportive community environment where you can reflect on your leadership capabilities, collaborate with a team of other student leaders and observe how you and your team fit into the wider community.
At each level of leadership, you will be encouraged to create novel, innovative ideas to address real-life topics that affect students and student leaders at U of T.
You have the chance to challenge yourself to discover more about the leader within and to experience leadership in a whole new light. Together, let’s reimagine leadership.
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.

What Students Are SayingRATE
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!
Retreat Participant, 2017
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.
