“The myriad situations that I have experienced while leading and participating in student organizations have provided me with many friendships and fostered a deeper understanding of the complexities of effective communication. As a leader, I have facilitated the diffusion of ideas by catalyzing activities for diverse populations.”
Student Activities and Leadership Development created the Leadership Education And Development Program (LEAD) to enhance the quality of individual student leadership and to provide services to promote quality organizational development opportunities for UC student groups and organizations. Our overall program promotes the philosophy that "leaders are made, not born." With that in mind our initiatives are designed to address three areas of leadership development:
Through the leadership initiatives developed by Student Activities and Leadership Development and the student’s own opportunities, the desired outcome is for the student to become more effective in solving problems and more self-aware as a member of a greater community.
An annual event since 1985, this one-day leadership conference focuses on building individual student leader skills and connections. This year will include energetic opening and closing sessions, lunch, a keynote, and nearly three dozen educational programs about community service, philanthropy, student organization funding, public speaking, campus scheduling, professional development and more!
