Discover Leadership 2021

Your potential as a leader isn’t dependent on the positions you have, the skills you’ve developed, or the goals you’ve set: all that matters is who YOU are! As a participant in UChicago Lead’s “Discover Leadership” program, you will be introduced to a variety of perspectives and experiences of “leadership.” We’ll reflect together in small groups as you use everything you have learned from our sessions to craft your unique Leadership Story. Interview and discussion sessions will all be held virtually in the weeks leading up to Orientation. These virtual sessions will be hosted by UChicago Leads staff and current UChicago student leaders.

We are pleased to offer "Discover Leadership" as a part of the College's varied Pre-Orientation programs. As scheduling details are confirmed, you can find more information here. Spots are limited. Applications for this year's cohort are now closed.
