Camp Rex: Leadership Retreat
As part of an ongoing educational leadership experience, incoming first-year students have an opportunity to participate in an overnight leadership retreat. The retreat is geared toward assisting new Royals in the transition from high school to university life and developing their leadership skills. Camp Rex's purpose is to expose incoming students to the Queens community by learning about themselves and what it means to be a Royal, meeting new friends, building leadership skills, and participating in exciting activities all while having a great time. Registration for Camp Rex begins each year during ROAR.
The Queens Leadership Institute
The Queens Leadership Institute is a three tier, self-paced leadership program for students. Tier I, "Leading the Self," explores personal foundations of leadership and establishes one’s self as an authentic leader. Tier II, "Leading with Others," focuses on civic responsibility, group dynamics, and cultural awareness/appreciation. Tier III, "Leading for Change," is a culmination of your leadership experience through immersion in positive social change.
The Leadership Institute is grounded in leadership theories that have been created and utilized with, and for, college students. The Department of Student Engagement has intentionally utilized the Social Change Model of Leadership Development (Astin & Astin, 1996) to develop workshops, reflections, and retreats that make up the Leadership Institute. The social change model believes that leadership is a values-based process where a leader must explore their individual values and collaborate with others to create positive social change for the community.
The Queens Leadership Institute is open to all students at Queens University of Charlotte who want to develop their leadership skills and build meaningful relationships on and off campus. The Leadership Institute is perfect for students in leadership roles to further engage on campus while advancing their skills as leaders.
