Leadership, Equity, and Diversity (LEAD)
Leadership, Equity, and Diversity
LEAD supports students from underserved communities in their transition to university, engagement in transformative learning experiences, and embarking on a career path as change agents. LEAD champions the principles of inclusion, diversity, and equity in higher education, providing a model for other universities to follow.
