2013 LEAD Workshops

2013 LEAD Workshops


Our interactive workshops are consistent with the PhilaU mission to prepare graduates for successful careers. By integrating certain “tracks,” we are able to infuse intentional themes through leadership and professional development. Students have a minimum of 4 workshops to attend, but 2 of them must fall within the Leadership & Professional Development areas.  Sessions are designed to develop your leadership skills and increase your networking opportunities with other student leaders in a variety of contexts.
