The health and safety of our faculty, staff, and students, is of the utmost importance to us. With that in mind, and in light of continuing health concerns related to COVID-19, the Office of Leadership Education and Development (LEAD) will postpone or cancel all in-person program events scheduled to take place through the end of the 2020 Spring Semester. Although the in-person program events are not taking place, we are working diligently to identify creative ways to keep you engaged and connected in your leadership development journey. 

Recruitment for all our programs is in full swing! Even though we’re not on campus, we still need you to apply and stay involved in our programs. 

Below you’ll find links and application deadlines for the exciting opportunities we have for you. Each program page is updated with recruitment and postponement information as it becomes available.
