Fall Leadership Retreat

Learning the Leadership Lifestyle

September 9-11, 2016

Lakeview Camp and Conference Center

The Leadership Center’s annual Fall Leadership Retreat is a beloved UTA Tradition. This off-campus retreat allows students to learn more about who they are as leaders, build their personal leadership skills, and make friends through small groups and fun activities throughout the weekend. This retreat typically includes educational breakout sessions, passionate and engaging keynote speakers, hands-on activities that help build your leadership skills, and time for networking with other campus leaders. The retreat is designed to impact everyone - from emerging, to accomplished leaders - so all UTA students are encouraged to register.

This year, the Fall Leadership Retreat will focus on "Learning the Leadership Lifestyle." Participants will gain an understanding of how leadership is based on every choice you make to be a leader which is then incorporated into your habits of leadership.

Meet Our 2016 Facilitator

Our retreat facilitator Troy Stende is returning for his third UTA Fall Leadership Retreat. Troy's energy and passion will inspire you to begin "living a leadership lifestyle". Troy will teach students how to manage conflict, work as a team, and break through personal barriers to be the best version of themselves.
