Maya Angelou with the Leadership Institute.

Founded in 1997 by the Associated Students of Montana State University to provide leadership opportunities and inspiration to students, the MSU Leadership Institute offers answers, resources, and connections for the future leaders of business, government, and education. Acting as a catalyst to the awakening of students' natural leadership skills, communication abilities, and creativity, the Institute empowers students to do more.

The Leadership Institute will lead Montana forward by generating further student involvement through increased leadership connections, trainings, film series, dynamic lunch discussions, and quality keynote speakers. Students will be constantly challenged to think deeper about their current leadership roles and their future impact. By leveraging powerful ideas into action, the Leadership Institute provides an environment for growing student leadership innovations.
