The Leadership Education and Development (LEAD) Team is a student organization that plans programs to empower and promote UNLV student leadership development.

We view leadership as a purposeful and collaborative process of creating change, and we believe leadership is a process with which everyone can engage. Our programs are designed to help every UNLV student-regardless of previous experience with leadership or identification as a leader-to understand, value, and practice socially-responsible leadership.


The LEAD Team hosts free, fun, dynamic programs and workshops to help every UNLV student learn and practice leadership skills!
