LEAD (Leadership, Enhancement, Activities & Development)

The University of West Florida offers high-level leadership development opportunities for faculty and staff members. LEAD, or Leadership, Enhancement, Activities & Development, fosters a community of leaders by encouraging team building through structured personal and interpersonal development. Each aspect of the program allows faculty and staff members to consider new ways of thinking through constructive, hands-on opportunities.

The program takes place during a year-long period, where faculty and staff members will hone their leadership skills through interactive workshops, round-table discussions, and strategy-building sessions developing solutions to issues affecting higher education, specifically UWF.

The program is led by Dr. Athena du PrĂ©, Distinguished University Professor.
