Leadership Education & Action Program (LEAP)

Leadership Education & Action Program (LEAP)

LEAP provides first-year freshmen & transfer students, from a wide range of backgrounds and with a variety of future goals, intensive leadership training and access to leadership opportunities. Students will get the chance to work with a student mentor to further guide them in an area/issue of their interest. This program not only provides leadership training, it also gives the selected students tools to better understand themselves as a growing leader, student, and unique individual. This is a great way to learn about yourself, your community and leadership while building lasting connections and making new friends!

Past participants have said:

  • "I have established so many wonderful friendships and networking contacts through LEAP. I really feel like this program was more beneficial than I ever could have imagined."
  • "I cannot say enough about how helpful LEAP has been. It opened my eyes to the ways in which I can successfully be a leader on this campus."
  • "I cannot remember a program that I have been involved in that has taught me so much about myself, brought me closer to my peers, and helped me realize my leadership potential. I strongly believe that this program is extremely beneficial for all freshmen and I feel that I was truly successful in my first year of college in terms of academia, social integration, and leadership because of my involvement with LEAP."
