ELLI Leadership Retreat

Save the Date: February 25-27, 2019 at Red Cliffs Lodge, Moab, Utah!

The Experiential Learning Leadership Institute (ELLI), in conjunction with the National Society for Experiential Education, is excited to announce our next Leadership Retreat. It will be held February 24-27, 2019 at the Red Cliffs Lodge, located along the banks of the beautiful Colorado River just outside Moab, Utah.

The Leadership Retreat is designed to assist teams from educational institutions and non-profits who are interested in "getting away from campus" to design, retool, build, or implement an experiential learning concept, program, or idea. Topics will vary considerably depending on campus needs. As long as the concept that teams are working on promotes the values and aspirations of experiential learning, it fits.

The retreat allows for teams to work with a notable expert in the field related to the topical area. The expert will consult with the respective teams as they consider all aspects of the concept they choose to work on. Teams will develop a deliverable to take back to their respective campuses to keep the momentum moving forward as they work toward campus buy-in and implementation. It is highly encouraged that participants include individuals from respective campuses who can help move ideas forward toward implementation.

To help defer costs and to help make this opportunity affordable for institutions, ELLI will cover the expense of all meals. Meeting space and materials for group work will also be provided. Teams are asked to submit a proposal for inclusion in the retreat. Space is limited.

Please go to the following form to submit your application today. Applications are due by October 20, 2018. We look forward to hosting your campus team for a few days in one of the more magnificent settings in the Western United States. A truly perfect destination to get away from campus and be inspired to dream big and develop something special!
