Program activities include interactive workshops, large and small group discussions, and various activities on intergroup relations, diversity, and leadership development. A large portion of the curriculum will be spent on self-identity exploration.


Leadership Today is facilitated by two Lead Educators and 5 Leadership Today Facilitators. LT Facilitators are SJSU Faculty and Staff who are responsible for overseeing a dialogue group at the retreat as well as assisting the group with their Tunnel of Oppression project.


Upon returning to SJSU, participants will be expected to continue their learning and development through participating in the Tunnel of Oppression, and will be responsible for the design, construction, and maintenance of the entryway and one of the rooms. The event is coordinated by MOSAIC Cross Cultural Center, and will take place during the first week of April.
