Immersion Experience


Each year the Leadership Quest program participants take part in a regional issue immersion and analysis experience. These self-selected teams are based on concern for a specific issue. Class members are expected to:

  • Employ inquiry as a community leadership skill
  • Use analytical methods to understand complex issues involving multiple stakeholders and conflicting agendas
  • Think about long-term improvements at a systemic, policy level
