Husky Leadership Initiative

U Lead We Lead

U Lead We Lead is the Husky Leadership Initiative’s signature event kicking off the school year. It is a cross-campus collaboration of faculty, staff and students that uses the art of storytelling to motivate leaders of today and tomorrow. As a community, we dive into timely and relevant questions about leadership. Beginning with the questions “What is leadership? How do I become a better leader?” U Lead We Lead participants learn from stories of leadership development—their own and those of local luminaries.

At U Lead We Lead, faculty, staff, and students build conversation in small groups that encourage active participation and sharing. No lectures about leadership here; this event is all about stories, experiences, and learning from one another.
