Student leaders equipping their peers to enact positive and effective change in themselves and their communities.
We believe that leadership is about the ability to positively change oneself, one’s communities and society. Leadership is not a positional, but rather a process, and The LEAD Project takes this to heart by targeting an audience of student group leaders.
In order for students to be efficient social change agents, we believe that students should embody these ideals:
- An awareness of self and commitment to values
- The confidence to speak their minds and offer contributions through their strengths
The active practice of inclusive leadership
- Consistent collaboration through trust, a common goal and embracing controversy with civility
During an isolating time for all of us, The LEAD Project is focusing on bring our campus community together.
New this year, The LEAD Project hosts “BEAR-adise” at least one Friday a month! Using the online platform Hop-In, BEAR-adise offers an opportunity for all Wash U students to win prizes, play games, and meet new friends.
Leadership starts with connecting the community.
Join us on March 12th and April 9th. Sign up on WUGO!
