Franklin & Marshall College Franklin & Marshall College

The Collegiate Leadership Summit

Franklin & Marshall College is a private, liberal arts college located in the city of Lancaster, Pennsylvania. As the 17th oldest college in the nation, we have a long history of academic excellence through a combination of liberal arts exploration and practical application. With an enrollment of about 2400 students, Franklin & Marshall College provides a learning experience that cultivates critical thought, collaborative action and encourages students to take an active role in our community. These ideals are central to an understanding of diversity within our community, and we believe they must become an expectation of all students on a liberal arts campus.

Franklin & Marshall College invites high school students from diverse backgrounds with a strong history of leadership to campus to explore their leadership abilities as they transition to a college environment. The Collegiate Leadership Summit is a two day program that provides selected delegates an opportunity to develop their leadership skills. Delegates interact with members of the F&M community and experience life in a selective liberal arts environment as they participate in leadership oriented workshops, seminars, and group activities. Delegates will also demonstrate their leadership skills through an admission interview and group activities. The cost of travel and attendance is covered by the College.

* Fall Session 1: Sunday, September 28th to Tuesday, September 30th
