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 a more 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 while interacting with F&M community members and experiencing college life in a highly selective liberal arts environment.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.
