Center for Student Success

Learning Enhancement Across the Disciplines (LEAD)

The Learning Enhancement Across the Disciplines (LEAD) Program takes a holistic approach to student success. LEAD classes cover learning strategies, wellness, reflective practices, and skills for academic success: promoting resilience, focus, self-efficacy, and leadership.

By enhancing their understanding of the learning processes and practices that are most effective for them, LEAD classes empower students to approach their education across academic disciplines with greater independence, satisfaction, and success as learners.

 LEAD courses are taught by staff and faculty across campus with different areas of expertise with courses in full semester, modules, and individual study formats.
