Leadership Exploration And Development (LEAD) for Change
The LEAD for Change program is designed for new students with a passion for working collaboratively with others to accomplish common goals focused on positive change. Through experiential activities, participation in a challenge course, discussions, intentional reflection, and networking opportunities, participants will deepen their learning about leadership while in community with peers. The retreats will support growth in the areas of self-awareness, teamwork, and leadership skills.
Staff and upper-class student mentors will provide information about campus and community leadership opportunities, and will help students engage with the Loyola community. No previous leadership experience is necessary; we all have the potential to engage in the leadership process. All that is required is an interest in learning, willingness to participate in group activities in a safe and supportive environment, and an enthusiastic, open-minded attitude.
August 19-22, 2013: The LEAD Pre-Welcome Week Experience is part of Loyola University Chicago's "Start the Fire: Pre-Welcome Week Experience" initiative for new students. Students wishing to participate must register a week prior to the retreat at www.luc.edu/leadership/retreat-payment.
