LEAD Series

The Leadership Education and Development (LEAD) Series is designed to help students reach their full leadership potential through interactive workshops. The series features a variety of sessions throughout the semester that focus on student leadership. The workshops are open to all students, regardless of leadership experience, and are hosted in the Student Organization Center in the basement of the University Union. LEAD Series are held in both the fall and spring semesters.

If you are interested in presenting at this series, please contact the OSA,
