2021-22 LEAD Fellows

LEAD Fellows

LEAD Fellows are well-trained peer leadership educators who facilitate leadership based workshops for individuals, groups, and beyond.   As an extension of Campus Engagement and Leadership (CEL), LEAD Fellows provide peer-to-peer opportunities for experiential learning with a theoretical foundation based on the Social Change Model of Leadership.  In order to promote leadership as a collaborative, purposeful, values-based, relational process, LEAD Fellows focus on programs that engage students with a variety of abilities, and engagement levels, with appropriately designed opportunities to develop their leadership capacity.

Becoming a LEAD FELLOW means taking on a high-level leadership experience to engage the campus community through peer mentoring, facilitating group experiences, and sharing a common language of leadership.
