Housing Leadership Institute


Apply for our regional award-winning program, the Housing Leadership Institute! The RHA Executive Board has developed this conference BY students FOR students. Those who attend HLI will be able to enjoy a five-day-long immersive leadership experience the week before classes begin. This institute also serves as a crash course on leadership and how to get involved on campus (this is an excellent way to meet new people).

Throughout the five days of HLI, there will be educational and interactive programming sessions, guest speakers, nightly entertainment, and meals for all participants. Programs will also take place on different parts of campus so you can get to know the campus before classes begin! HLI will potentially be your first step to becoming a part of ‘Knight Nation’!

HLI will provide free breakfast, lunch, and dinner for all participants. Students are able to choose from a wide array of entertaining, leadership, social justice, self-care, and college readiness programming sessions that last throughout the day. These sessions are presented by campus organizations, professional staff members, AND students! In the evening, students will attend dinner and nighttime social programs that feature fun activities like human-sized board games or lip-sync battles. This gives students the opportunity to forge new friendships that could last throughout college!
