How do you plant, grow, and deepen your leadership talents?
How do you create the change you wish to see?
At U Lead We Lead, students and members of the University community will dig into stories from local leaders about cultivating leadership in yourself and in others.
Four local luminaries each share their story and perspective on leadership and call you to action. Have you ever wanted to talk about a TED talk with people who’ve seen the same speaker? At U Lead We Lead, you get to listen to interesting talks by smart people and then talk about what you heard in small groups. Shine a light on teamwork, respect, responsibility, and civic engagement through dynamic reflection and rich conversation.
Think you’ll be hungry? Don’t worry; dinner will be provided.
