LEAD: Leadership Empowerment and Academic Development

LEAD: Leadership Empowerment and Academic Development Program

LEAD (Leadership, Empowerment and Academic Development) is a first-year program designed to support and assist multicultural, high-potential, and involved students to have a successful transition into college. 

This unique year-long program is one that prompts professional and academic development through mentorship, built-in tutoring services, and weekly meetings that provide participants with the tools and resources needed to be successful in the Eller College following completion of the program. The LEAD program also aims to foster a sense of community amongst members to build long and meaningful connections. 

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 or Multicultural Business Student Association)
  • Willingness to have fun!
