LEAD: Leadership Empowerment and Academic Development Program


LEAD is a program designed to help incoming pre-professional first-year students like yourself so that you can have a successful transition into college life.

The three core values of LEAD are Leadership, Academic Success and Professional Development. Students who master these core values have a higher rate of achievement in college.

By joining this program, you will be connected to peers who have proven their success at the Eller College and would love to help you become just as successful. Through these connections you will receive mentorship, feel a sense of community and of course have a lot of fun!

We really encourage you to take part in this unique and opportunity. The requirements of the LEAD program are:

  • Weekly meetings on Mondays from 5-6 p.m.
  • Weekly study hall on Thursdays from 4-6 p.m. (only need to stay for 1 hour)
  • Two meetings per year with your academic advisor
  • Join an Eller Diversity Club (Association of Latino Professional for America, Eller African American Honorary, Eller Hispanic Honorary, Eller Unity Board or Multicultural Business Student Association)
  • Willingness to have fun!
