The Leadership Education and Development (LEAD) Series is designed to help students reach their full leadership potential - and learn how to use these skills in their own lives and their roles in student organizations. With presentations designed by a variety of students, professionals, and faculty, there's bound to be something you're interested in! While some sessions may be designed for student organizations, all students are welcome to attend the LEAD Series in the Student Organization Center regardless of involvement level. Simply pull up a purple couch and get ready to learn!
Topics are chosen by a student committee from submitted proposals. Proposals for LEAD Series Fall 2013 are now being accepted! We encourage students to get involved in a variety of ways - what's better than presenting to your peers?
