Leadership Education and Development (LEAD)


The Leadership Education and Development (LEAD) program develops Emporia State University students by enhancing their leadership knowledge and skills through a variety of venues and opportunities. LEAD sponsors the E-Experience which is intense leadership summer retreats, leadership speakers and workshops, and sponsors Sigma Alpha Lambda — the national honorary leadership organization. LEAD Emporia is another exciting, innovating program that gives 15 students an opportunity to network and build relationships with the Emporia business community, learn about volunteer and service opportunities, and interact with prominent community leaders. The minor in leadership is an 18 academic credit hour program designed to challenge you as a leader.
