Steger Center Vision

The idea of the Steger Center came to be during an Antarctica Expedition, manifested in a detailed drawing of a five-story center designed to help people develop skills and cultivate leaders. It was to become a center that nurtures community, cares for the earth, and inspires leaders to solve real-world problems. With community spaces, master classes, and international leadership conferences – the Steger Center exists to build a sustainable community in the NorthWoods and inspire future generations of leaders.
