What is the Magis Leadership Retreat?

The Magis Leadership Retreat is a weekend long retreat that offers a unique opportunity for sophomore and junior students from all across campus to come together and explore leadership in a new and innovative way. Instead of traditional skill building workshops associated with leadership development, the Magis Leadership Retreat challenges students to reflect on their personal story and how that story impacts the community around them. Magis, which means “more” in Latin, captures the overall purpose of this retreat. Participants will gain a greater understanding of empowerment as a foundation of leadership and they will be challenged to utilize their personal story as a tool to shape their understanding of themselves as leaders. The more participants understand their stories, the more self empowered they become, allowing them to work together toward a “greater good”. We hope that in giving students the opportunity to take a more in-depth look at their story, they will become more cohesive leaders both on and off of Santa Clara’s campus.
