The Office of Student Engagement and Multicultural Affairs presents the 11th annual Cross Cultural Leadership Retreat (CCLR) on November 9-11, 2012. This retreat offers the opportunity to explore various aspects of diversity and their relationships to leadership.

During this two-day, off campus retreat, the entire group will participate in a series of educational sessions and discuss issues both in large lectures, and smaller intimate groups.  Transportation, meals, lodging and participant materials are provided at no cost to the participants. The group will depart from IC Campus Friday morning, November 9 and return Sunday afternoon, November 11.

Interested students must submit the application BEFORE 5:00pm on MONDAY, October 1, to be considered for participation.  Applications are available online at

This program is open to all Ithaca College students regardless of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender, religion, socio-economic status, and physical or learning ability. As one past participant noted, “Everyone has a cultural identity. At first, I wondered why some people were chosen. I soon understood.”
