What is EVOLVE?
EVOLVE helps you in the lifelong quest to become the best version of yourself. The program encourages to become aware of and foster the impact you can have as a leader on campus and in your chosen communities. Spend 1.5 days with 25 of your peers on a fall leadership retreat on September 14th and 15th and engage in one-on-one coaching upon your return to campus. We want students who are interested in personal development and have a desire to lead positive change. A leader must be self-aware and EVOLVE will serve as the perfect medium for this adventure. Effective leaders will always be needed in every realm of life. What you learn by participating in EVOLVE will serve you throughout your academic and professional career.
