On August 8, MCCN’s 22 student ambassadors attended a special one-day retreat to get them ready for the 2014-15 academic year. Activities centered around leadership, specifically broadening their idea of what a leader is and how they can make an impact in a leadership role. Held at Rising Park in Lancaster, programming included determining each ambassador’s leadership style, learning how to interact with those with different leadership styles, diversity and inclusion, leadership traits/characteristics and servant leadership.
