Faculty, staff, administrators, graduate students and guests are invited to participate in the 8th annual Leadership, Learning and Service Retreat July 9-18, 2013 at Pieve International School in Corciano, Italy.

Leadership Retreat in Italy

This program is geared to immerse participants in the Franciscan culture of Umbria, and to further global awareness and competence in leadership, learning and/or service.

Visits to Assisi, Perugia, Cortona, Deruta and Lake Trasimeno are included. These sites offer a balance of sightseeing, reflection, personal growth, and a sense of community as participants come to know each other and begin to see the world from a different perspective.

The program includes a variety of experiences shaped by the interests of the participants. Visits to Franciscan sites, sustainable businesses, University of Perugia, Umbria Jazz Festival and meetings with Italian civic, educational, non-profit, health care and spiritual leaders all serve to develop relationships and cross-cultural learning, which helps address common issues within our global environment. 

The cost of the program is typically $1,800 to $2,200, depending on personal lodging preferences and the Euro/dollar exchange rate. The application deadline is Tuesday, April 2, 2013. Visit the Leadership Center webpage for more information about the program.
