Program Overview:

The Centre for Student Engagement believes that all students have the ability to become a leader.  Leadership is about challenging yourself to become an agent of change not only for yourself but for others and the entire community.  Through utmLEAD you will be able to develop your own personal philosophy of leadership and explore what being a leader means to others, and the community. 

The utmLEAD program will give students an opportunity to gain leadership skills through a cohort model that is focused around the Social Change Model. Peer Leadership Coaches will facilitate all sessions.  The cohort model will give students an opportunity to collaborate and build relationships with their peers.  

Using the Social Change Model as our foundation, we have divided the program into four types of cohorts. Each cohort will meet once a week, for six weeks.

  1. Discover your Leadership Potential

  2. Build Effective Teams

  3. Make an Impact

  4. Global Justice

We encourage students to participate in one cohort per-term; however students may choose to be involved with multiple cohorts throughout each term.  

utmLEAD is recognized on the Co-Curricular Record.
