TIMES, STUDENTS, and careers have changed since the Leadership
Exploration and Development was introduced in 1989, and its time
for LEAD to change, too. After careful review, a LEAD revision
committee announced significant changes that will be implemented
in the course for Autumn 1998 incoming students.
There will be two major changes to the program. The curriculum
will no longer be created from scratch each year, but will be
based on the same basic modules and modified as needed. And LEAD
modules will focus more on specific career management and communication
skills that will aid students in their job searches and enhance
The curriculum will no longer be developed by student facilitators;
instead, a committee will set the subject matter, so facilitators
can concentrate more on delivery of the program. This will allow
the facilitators receive more training. In addition, working from
a core curriculum will also ensure that LEAD is a quality experience
from year to year and cohort to cohort.
A significantly expanded orientation will feature three-day modules
focusing on career management, interpersonal communications effectiveness,
and academic planning. LEAD facilitators will present the first
two modules; the academic planning section will be presented by
the Office of Student Services.
