The FYLC is designed to provide our incoming first-year students an opportunity to discover their strengths as they apply to leadership development.  This leadership opportunity it available to 40 first-year students which helps them to get engaged in the campus community by meeting cohort members as well as upper class student mentors.

iLead Leadership Series:  Applying leadership to your everyday life

iLead is a leadership series that is open to any students and is based upon the Social Change Model of Leadership. The series is intentionally designed for undergraduates to enhance their leadership skills and knowledge of self.  iLead is dedicated to providing innovative sessions that promote engaging, challenging, and active learning experiences that empower students to create change in themselves, in others, and in the larger world.
