Leadership Education and Development (L.E.A.D.)

The K-LAB offers leadership opportunities to Kogod student club officers through its Leadership Education and Development (L.E.A.D.) series. 

Club leaders are surveyed at the start of each academic year about their reasons for deciding to lead an organization on-campus and what skills they hope to develop through their position. 

Using their responses, the K-LAB designs specialized workshops and resources to help them achieve their leadership goals.
