The MY IOWA Multicultural and International Student Leadership Summit is an overnight retreat. Open to all UI students, MY IOWA will give participants a chance to build connections and leadership skills with a diverse group of people who want to make the university a place where all feel welcome. This is a fun and exciting way to start your semester off, and build strong relationships throughout your time at Iowa! The curriculum has strong connections with The National Coalition Building Institute (NCBI) model and other leadership development experiences.

This year, MY IOWA will occur on September 13–14, 2013, with 45 student spots available. The event will be held at Camp Wyoming in Wyoming, Iowa, with transportation and meals being provided for all participants, free of charge.  We will meet at the Iowa Memorial Union at 3:00pm on September 13, and travel from there to Camp Wyoming.  Participants will stay overnight, and return to Iowa City by 4pm on September 14.

After the MY IOWA retreat, participants will be invited to several events, and dialogues throughout the year to build upon the relationships formed, and also to help connect these leaders to campus resources, administrators, faculty, staff, and fellow students.
