Ignite Leadership Summit


The Ignite Leadership Summit is a fun-filled three-day event for incoming students who want an experience like nothing else!

Led by Ignite Team Leaders—current students at UT, the Ignite Leadership Summit experience provides a warm welcome to Big Orange Country. Each team will also have a Facilitator—a UT staff member who volunteers their time to meet and welcome the new Vols alongside the Ignite Team Leaders.

The Ignite Leadership Summit takes place off-campus. The cost of $200 to your student account includes transportation from campus, air-conditioned lodging, meals, ropes course, a T-shirt, and program materials. 

Program Highlights

  • Move into your residence hall early (For the Fall 2021 Ignite Leadership Summit session participants will move-in on August 12th)

  • Participate in an outdoor challenge course (always “challenge by choice”)
  • A high-energy UT traditions tournament
  • Learn UT chants, cheers, and game day traditions
  • Define your personal leadership style, identify your core values, and learn how to work with others in a group setting
  • Enjoy bonfires, games, and dance parties
