Cougs Lead

Meet new people outside your major and living groups while developing leadership and personal skills.  Cougs Lead is a free opportunity for first and second-year students. You gain a better understanding of your values, leadership style, and how to lead your own events, programs, or organizations on campus. You also learn about student organizations, off-campus opportunities, and student government.

Program Workshops & Schedule

I believe anyone who wants to become the best version of themselves should join Cougs Lead. This program was not only rewarding for my own growth but also was a fun way to make more friends and become involved in the community.
