The LEAD Fellows Program focuses on student development through direct engagement in the community. LEAD Fellows work in the community to address social issues such as education, homelessness, racial justice and poverty. Students attend regular meetings to reflect on their work in the community together. They focus on creating a greater understanding of campus-community collaboration as well as engaging other students in the important work to be done in the community.
Applications for incoming first year students for 2016/2017 are due August 15, 2016.
