All UW LEND Fellows are required to complete a leadership project under the guidance of their faculty mentor or other UW LEND faculty. Examples of leadership projects include:
- Project that fulfills the fellow’s academic thesis or dissertation requirement
- Pilot research study
- Survey research for a needs study or to assess quality of service and/or client satisfaction
- Product or resource for use in clinical service or training
UW LEND fellows present their leadership project at the Annual UW LEND Day typically held in early June. Leadership projects are presented as either a 10 minute oral presentation with PowerPoint slides or as a professional poster presentation. Ideas for Leadership Projects should be discussed with the faculty mentor no later than Winter Quarter.
Preparation of a manuscript for publication in a peer-reviewed journal is a final outcome for many leadership projects.
Step One: Complete the Leadership Project Information Form
Step Two: Prepare a professional poster or PowerPoint presentation. See tips below
