Our Partners
The James W. Burns Leadership Institute is proud to partner with University College of the North, University of Winnipeg, and Red River College. 

“This program offers students from University College of the North a great opportunity to gain a broad perspective on leadership that will help them be successful when taking on leadership positions in their communities and in their workplaces,” says Dan Smith, Vice-President Academic and Research at UCN.

The program provides important experiences that will help graduates be leaders in the north, for the north,” Smith concludes.

Christine Watson, Vice President, Academic, at Red River College, says: “We are excited to provide this unique opportunity for our RRC students to build on their leadership talents, gain access to innovative organizations, and broaden their network of support. The President’s Student Leadership Program has been designed with applied learning in mind, empowering students through real-life experiences and immediately relevant skills.”

University of Manitoba students will make up 70% of the program spots, while 30% of the spots are reserved for applicants from the program’s partner schools.
