The Retreat provides a highly effective learning experience that fosters personal growth, teamwork and leadership skills. It consists of lectures and activities that encourage examination of self as well as challenging, experiential learning activities designed to enhance various skills relating to teamwork, leadership, trust, communication and many others that can be applied to academics and life in general. This is one of the mandatory events for CMP students with transportation, meals, lodging and activities provided free of charge.
The 2015 CMP Retreat was sponsored in part by Northwestern Mutual-Newport Beach. Students had the pleasure of listening to the inspiring story of managing partner, Mr. Timothy Mulroy.
A special thanks to Mr. Mulroy for joining us at this year's retreat, and to Northwestern Mutual for a strong partnership for the support of all our programs for many years now!
