A great new leadership is being offered for freshman...

Have you been thinking about how you will make a difference in your own life and how you affect the people around you? We are looking for first year students—those who would call themselves leaders and those who don’t yet—to enroll in a new course on leadership development. Our principle belief is that all students—no matter who they are or what they are like—can  be the architect of their leadership journeys at UW.   Using a combination of large format lectures, small leadership labs facilitated by amazing student and staff leaders, guest speakers, and cutting edge technology like online games, our aim is to give first year students a customized experience of self-reflection and connection to others to accelerate their leadership development.
