Leadership, Exploration, and Development

Each year students have the opportunity to attend over 20 one-time LEAD workshops to learn about a variety of leadership topics.  These events occur on Wednesday’s throughout each fall and spring semester.  We partner with the Career Center, the Center for Identity and Inclusion, and the Ethnic Studies Department to provide a robust offering of topics.   Example topics from the 2020-2021 series include:
