The MSU Leadership Institute's annual Leadership Summit, Outdoor Leading, Upward Thinking promises a tremendous opportunity to affect positive change in student leaders at MSU.  The conference provides time for leadership vision activities so that students may think deeply about how their personal vision may also support the greater good. Students will gain an understanding about how to work with diverse teams to solve complex challenges and to be more thoughtful and more durable leaders by learning how to tap into their own excellence as well as the excellence of others.
