"Greater Than Yourself" Retreat
Annual retreat takes place in late September
Pine Valley, CA
The annual Greater Than Yourself (GTY) Retreat is a free, two and a half day program bringing together a diverse set of students to explore personal awareness and identity, learn leadership concepts and strategies, and build campus relationships and alliances. Participants develop their knowledge of self and others, enhance their awareness of intergroup dynamics, and expand their "toolkits" of campus resources and involvement opportunities. Students return to campus relationships, organizations, and other involvements with new knowledge to promote understanding and networks for action. The retreat is co-sponsored by the United Front Multicultural Center (UFMC) and the Student Leadership and Involvement Center (SLIC).
