Mentor Meetings — Each month during the school year, LEAD students meet with a mentor
to develop both professionally and personally. Mentors often share their own experiences
and expertise to help students in their lives.
Capstone Interviews — In addition to meeting with a mentor, students interview professionals

and become leaders, LEAD students must apply their study of leadership experiences
through their followership and often, LEAD students become involved with on-campus
organizations like Student Government, UVU Clubs, and UVU Service Learning; however,
students are free to engage in off-campus opportunities where they actively fulfill
a leadership role.
Theory — To gain a knowledge of leadership styles, LEAD students attend workshops
and seminars. Students are also encouraged to read books or watch webinars to gain

Coursework— LEAD students also complete several leadership courses which teach an
academic concept of leadership. These classes include an engaged learning course,
Principles of Leadership, and over 70 electives.
