LI's 2012 In Review
January 2, 2013 | By Lauren Day
This past year—2012—was record-breaking for the Leadership Institute. LI’s staff and 349 volunteer faculty trained 13,896 conservatives—the most ever in any year of the Institute’s 33-year history—bringing the total trained to 116,800 since its 1979 founding. LI hosted 359 trainings in more than 30 states and 13 countries.
Twelve stories on LI’s CampusReform.org made national news, making the site America’s #1 source for campus news online with more than 2 million unique hits. LI’s 25 field representatives helped conservative students start 269 new independent student groups into LI’s unique network of 1,511 student groups on 616 college campuses, the largest such network in the nation.
LI’s Career Services Center hosted 985 attendees at job fairs, offered 120 hours of personal career mentoring, and placed 104 conservatives in jobs. LI’s 37 interns came from 33 colleges, 19 states, 6 countries, and spent 3,429 hours combined in LI training.
It’s been a good year at the Leadership Institute, and we are excited about what 2013 has in store!
