Registration for Leadership Bootcamp is now full! Leadership Bootcamp will be offered again next year.

How can you be a more successful leader? Research shows that people who are gritty and resilient are more successful in life. During our Leadership Bootcamp, you will learn to build your grit and enhance your ability to overcome difficulties! Everyone faces obstacles, but not everyone succumbs to them.  

The Centre for Student Engagement is excited to bring UTM this opportunity based on the book Grit by Angela Duckworth. Our two-day Leadership Bootcamp will help you:  

  • Identify long-term goals
  • Gain resiliency training
  • Develop mental toughness
  • Incorporate mindfulness
  • Make new friends

Whether it's a bad mark or a failed plan, having grit is what makes the difference between someone who gives up and someone who gets back up and moves forward with passion.  

Join us this Fall Reading Week for our two-day Leadership Bootcamp, which will help you build resilience to better face the year with even more perseverance!
