President's Message
The President’s Student Leadership program will provide student leaders from across the province with the opportunity to hone their leadership skills, learn from peers and be inspired by top leaders throughout Manitoba.

We are pleased to offer this program to post-secondary students, not only from the University of Manitoba, but from collaborating institutions throughout the province.

Diversity is paramount to the success of this program. We look to have representation from students across various areas of study, cultural backgrounds and geographical locations. By learning from each other and embracing various perspectives, we strive to shape the next generation of leaders for our province.

We at the University of Manitoba are excited by this opportunity and the transformational impact it will have in developing great leaders. We look forward to the other programming and research yet to come from our new Institute for Leadership Development. I’d like to extend our sincere appreciation to Canada Life, IG Wealth Management and Power Corporation of Canada for their visionary investment in our province and country’s future leaders. Their support of the Institute will provide students with unique opportunities to unlock their potential and discover innovative paths forward in any career they pursue.
