LEAD (Learn Engage Acquire Discover) Program

The Center for the Advancement of Leadership (CAL) trains UVU students to become leaders by approaching leadership development as more than simply management. The LEAD Program is one of three tracks in a one or two year certification program and focuses on four key areas of personal development: Learn, Engage, Acquire, and Discover. Together, these areas ensure growth—both personally and professionally—while students are enrolled in our program.
