Leadership Development Opportunities
Every student has the capacity to contribute to their surroundings and fellow individuals. At Pratt Institute, every effort is made to ensure that students develop into leaders that can successfully affect change in any environment, amongst all endeavors. Student organizations, clubs, groups, and activities and programs give students the ability to exercise essential student leadership skills, develop relationships, and gain an understanding of personal and group dynamics that parallel real-world situations that Pratt students will face.
Apart from the many activities and organizations that the school offers, a number of leadership development opportunities exist to promote student growth. From new students to seasoned student leaders, from first-year students to graduate students, all Pratt students can emerge into prosperous leaders while honing basic tools for success at Pratt and in the future.

2013 Leadership Retreat
Each year, the Office of Student Involvement hosts a leadership retreat for interested Pratt students. The retreat is an overnight event at a camping center where participants learn about leadership styles and how these styles apply these styles to their own leadership experience. Students who have gone on the retreat over the years have learned concepts that have enhanced their personal leadership paths and increased their self-confidence. Some students have even gone on the retreat more than one year to reap the benefits of the activities offered.
Our next Leadership Retreat will be in early fall semester, 2013. Applications will be available at the start of the fall 2013 semester.
