Leadership Institute

The Leadership Institute is designed for first-year students who have leadership and service potential, with the hope that these students will become active members of the URI community.

*Join us in 2024 for Leadership Institute’s 32nd year!*

Leadership Institute will continue to grow and adapt to widen the circle, welcome more folks, and make new memories. Get ready for HUNDREDS of connections between August 28-30, 2024.

Participants of Leadership Institute will continue to enjoy opportunities to learn about and develop leadership skills, examine issues of inclusion and community participation, and discover leadership opportunities available at the university from some of URI’s outstanding peer student leaders, faculty members, and administrators.

The estimated cost for the 2024 program will be $225; limited scholarships and financial aid are available. For on campus residents, there will be an early move-in charge from the Housing and Residential Life department that will appear on your term bill. Follow us on social media for the latest updates!
