LEAP’s Intensive Leadership Development Program offers students the opportunity to develop skills that will help them become more effective group leaders, group members, organizational members, and on a long-term basis, better employees. Students participate in an intensive, experiential learning process that will help them develop more advanced leadership skills.
WHEN: Students participate in 45 hours of workshops as a cohort over two semesters. Unless otherwise noted, meetings take place Thursday evenings from 6-8:30 PM.
HOW: LEAP uses a variety of learning techniques such as games, role plays, lecturettes, group discussion, self-reflection, and service projects. Topics include:
Community Service Requirement: Students are required to complete a community service project that requires at least 8 hours of volunteer time. The project may be within the LEAP program or through another experience on the campus or in the community. Projects will be approved by the LEAP facilitators.
Leadership Certificate: Students will be awarded a leadership certificate upon their successful completion of this program.
