If any MSU student, staff, faculty member, or Bozeman community member is looking for legitimate ways to enhance their leadership skills and development profile, the LI is the place to be. The organiz...ation's commitment to bringing high quality experiences and opportunities to MSU is inspirational, and I am looking forward to who and what they are bringing next! See More

I am very disappointed in the institutes decision to cancel the Rob O'Neil event. I am a proud bobcat alum that was heavily involved in organizations that grew into your current Institute. Mr. O'Nei...l has not been convicted of a crime, has a plausible defense and even if guilty his life experience including a DUI charge, guilty or not, are teachable moments especially on a college campus. The decision to cancel the event is the exact opposite of leadership in my opinion. This is a poor decision made in haste. See More

Before working at the Leadership Institute, I faced difficulties in socializing with people, including my closest friends, and had a tough time getting through freshman year. Since working here, I hav...e been pushed to become a better student, team member, and friend. I cannot imagine not having worked with the amazing Associates I am privileged to call my co-workers and I would not trade it for the world. Joining the MSU Leadership Institute legacy is one of the best decisions I have ever made. See More

It was through my experience at the Leadership institute's Summit retreat where I truly first understood what it meant to be a leader. It was through their inspiration and guidance that I have become ...impassioned to be a true everyday leadership and change the way that all those around me view leadership. See More

The Veteran Support Center at MSU will give a 20-minute presentation about veteran reintegration prior to the showing of the film. The screening is free and open to the public.

A presentation about reintegration of veterans will precede a free screening of the feature film “Hacksaw Ridge,” set for 5 p.m. Tuesday, March 20, at Montana State University’s Procrastinator Theater in the MSU Strand Union Building.

Hosted by the MSU Leadership Institute, the event is free and open to the public. Complimentary refreshments will be provided. The doors open at 4:30 p.m.

Prior to the film, representatives from MSU’s Veteran Support Center will give a 20-minute... presentation about the importance of reintegrating veterans back into society after they return from service. This presentation will center on raising awareness for veterans and highlight the leadership skills shown by veterans.

“This film will move audience members with its portrayal of true heroic leadership both on and off the battlefield,” said Joe Schumacher, program manager of the MSU Veteran Services. “The students of the Veteran Services office voted to show this film not only because it depicts a true story about an actual hero, but also because it demonstrates the importance of standing up for what you believe in the midst of opposition.”

Directed by Mel Gibson, the film is based on the 2004 documentary, “The Conscientious Objector.” It focuses on the true story of World War II combat medic, Desmond Doss. Doss became the first man in American history to receive the Medal of Honor without firing a shot after saving 75 men in Okinawa, during one of the bloodiest battles of WWII.

The event is presented by the MSU Leadership Institute and sponsored by the Veteran Services office, the MSU Procrastinator Theater, Office of the Provost, and the Associated Students of Montana State University.
