Welcome to the Department of

Leadership Education and Development

The LEAD staff strives to assist students in developing their abilities surrounding three knowledge domains:

Self-Awareness as a Leader
Leadership and Teams
Leading Our World

Leadership is a relationship and learned, therefore Team LEAD works with students, faculty and staff across the University to reflect, integrate, and expand on what they have learned to improve the worldwide community in which we all live.

LEAD is committed to providing an atmosphere that fosters learning, personal growth, and exploration of individual and group leadership skills. These ideals are consistent to that of the University's mission. We have the perfect program for you whether you are new to FAU, an established student leader, faculty or staff, or somewhere in between!
