Dragon Leadership Program Illuminate Student Showcase

Monday, April 9 | 7 p.m. | CMU Ballroom

The Dragon Leadership Program (DLP) invites the campus community to attend the DLP Illuminate Student Showcase on Monday, April 9 (tonight) starting at 7 p.m. in the CMU Ballroom. The event will feature DLP Illuminate students sharing their leadership journey through a storymapping project. There will be a short introduction at 7:10 p.m. Attendees will then have time to talk to our DLP students by visiting each of their tables to hear about their leadership journey and ask questions (i.e. similar to poster presentations) until 8:30 p.m. Refreshments will be served.

Participants in the DLP are active in a student organization, have conducted various service hours, have implemented a community service project, and have held a long term leadership role. Students that complete the two-year co-curricular leadership program get a medal to wear at graduation. Applications to be involved in the program happen each September. More information can be found at www.mnstate.edu/osa/dragon-leadership.
