LEAD Diversity Fellows Program
The Office of Institutional Diversity is seeking nominations of undergraduate students for participation in the LEAD Diversity Fellows Program. LEAD (Leaders Engaged in Affirming Diversity) is a year-long fellowship program that allows students to enhance their leadership competencies, explore various facets of diversity, and exhibit knowledge of diversity and inclusion leadership. LEAD Fellows will join a directed study course in which they will review seminal and current literature on diversity and leadership, participate in class discussions on current issues, engage with local and national diversity leaders, maintain a portfolio of critical reflections, and complete a group project that addresses a current issue of diversity on campus. Eight students will be selected as fellows for the 2016-2017 academic year.
Fellows must agree to participate in meetings or events on the following dates:
Sunday, August 21, 2016 | 2pm-6pm
Thursday, September 15, 2016 | 5pm-7pm
Wednesday, October 19, 2016 | 5pm-7pm

Tuesday, February 21, 2017 | 5pm-7pm
Wednesday, March 15, 2017 | 5pm-7pm

Students selected for the fellowship must be sophomores or juniors during the 2016-2017 academic year and have a 3.0 GPA or higher. Strong candidates will demonstrate an interest in diversity leadership and articulate a desire to benefit from and contribute to the fellowship.
