The People's Institute
The People's Institute (TPI)
SAVE THE DATE: February 13th-15th 2015!
Sponsored by the Student Leadership Development and the department of Student Diversity and Multicultural Affairs, The People's Institute will be held from Friday, February 13th through Sunday, February 15th, 2015. TPI will be hosted at the Loyola University Retreat & Ecology Campus (LUREC).
TPI aims to empower students to explore and reflect upon the interconnection between leadership and social justice. In the spirit of Jesuit education, TPI is an exciting leadership opportunity for students at Loyola University Chicago. This program is designed to raise awareness, examine privilege and responsibility, engage in self-exploration regarding multiple identities, and learn skills to create positive social change.
The students who are selected to participate will have demonstrated self-motivation and a willingness to learn and share about their lived experiences, while engaging in reflection and dialogue with a diverse cross section of our campus. Because the sponsoring departments cover all costs for participants, and there is a limit to how many students can participate, there is an application process. The application can be found here: https://orgsync.com/71001/forms/111227
Priority applications were due November 21st. At this point, no additional spots are available, but we have started a waitlist, so please apply if you are interested in attending. It is not unusual for spaces to open up closer to the date as people's schedules change or unexpected circumstances arise.
