Leadership retreat

Leadership Journey-a new personal leadership opportunity for graduate students, young professionals and the young at heart-now is accepting applications for a Nov. 6-7 retreat. The two-day, one-night retreat includes a 5-mile trek through the North Georgia Blue Ridge Mountains and an overnight stay at the Len Foote Hike Inn.

The retreat combines activities designed to challenge participants to reflect on their individual leadership styles and future goals, have fun and get to know new people.

Leadership Journey is co-developed and co-led by UGA’s J.W. Fanning Institute for Leadership Development, a public service and outreach unit, and the Outdoor Recreation Program.

Food, lodging and transportation from Athens is included. More information, including ­registration forms, is online at
