What is LeaderShape?

As a part of Ohio State's partnership with LeaderShape, we offer two programs. See below for more details.


Catalyst is a one-day program focused on learning to develop your own authentic path, connect to groups and causes you care about, and commit to a plan to be a catalyst for yourself and the groups you’re part of. You’ll consider powerful questions that move you towards action: Am I on the right path? Who do I want to be? How can I connect with other like-minded individuals? In small-group dialogue, large group interaction, and personal reflection, you’ll learn alongside others who also want to start something extraordinary.

Catalyst 2019 will occur Sunday, October 20 as the kick-off to Leadership WeekApplications are now open and close October 13 at 11:30 p.m. To apply, please visit:

LeaderShape Institute

The LeaderShape Institute challenges participants to lead with integrity while working towards a vision grounded in their deepest values. Participants explore not only what they want to do, but who they want to be. Dynamic, challenging, and exciting, the week is intended to produce a breakthrough in the leadership capacity of participants—benefiting them individually, as well as their respective communities and the organizations they will go on to lead and serve in the future.

Coming Spring 2020, we will sponsor students to attend national sessions of the LeaderShape Institute with other student leaders from across the country. Check back in Spring 2020 for more details
