D.U. Lead

What is D.U. Lead?
D.U. Lead

D.U. Lead is an intensive weekend institute for emerging leaders in the Denison community. Limited to a select number of first-year students, the D.U. Lead institute aims to address and develop a variety of leadership skills.

D.U. Lead is about leading with integrity and “Making Your Mark” within the Denison Community to create and sustain positive change. D.U. Lead participants participate in fun, interactive activities and simulations in a lively, upbeat environment. The social change model of leadership development is the theoretical basis for this Institute. Participants work closely with 8-10 peers in small groups called “clubs.” Participants will be mentored by junior/senior students who serve as club facilitators.

Applications for D.U. LEAD! are now CLOSED. Please check back in Summer 2015 for information on next year's program.
