LEAP: Lead Where You Live is a pilot experiential leadership program for residential students.  With room for 20 students who are interested to explore who they are through an inclusive, Strengths-based approach, we hope to provide an experience that challenges perspectives and offers unique opportunities to get involved in their residential community.  Participants will have the ability to plan community-based events compliant with CDC social distancing guidelines and share feedback with Res Life leadership.
