Leadership Development

Lead Fellows

As a student leadership board within the Center for Leadership and Civic Engagement, the Lead Fellows provides practical opportunities for students to develop and apply leadership awareness, knowledge, competencies, and skills. Lead Fellows consists of two dynamic subcommittees with six event chairs working collaboratively to promote individual student engagement and registered student organization (RSO) development. Lead Fellows contribute to the enhancement of a robust campus life by developing and executing programs, services, and initiatives that advance campus and community involvement; boost organizations' visibility and effectiveness; increase students' leadership efficacy; and create opportunities for powerful partnerships.
