Nominations open for students and sponsors for the LeaderShape Institute, Oct. 7 to 12

York University is gearing up for its 11th annual LeaderShape Institute, which will take place Oct. 7 to 12 at the Delta Hotel in Guelph, Ont. Sixty York University students will have an opportunity to attend this award-winning leadership development program.

If you know of a student (or students) in your area – a person or a group who you think could benefit from attending the program, such as a member of your peer mentor group, a work-study student or any passionate student – organizers ask that you consider submitting a nomination (or nominations), since not all nominees will be available to attend.

To nominate a student or a group for the LeaderShape Institute, email Urshian Khalid at or visit

Student Community and Leadership Development has funding to cover a limited number of participants; however, the overarching goal is to have 60 students with representation from all areas at York University. Sponsorships are thus being sought for one or more students. The fees for LeaderShape are $1,000 per person, including taxes. For more information, contact Urshian Khalid at or ext. 44175.

The deadline to submit an application is Wednesday, Sept. 12.
