How do you plant, grow, and deepen your leadership talents?
How do you cultivate leadership in yourself and others?

At U Lead We Lead, students and members of the University community will dig into stories from local leaders about cultivating leadership in yourself and in others.

Four local luminaries each share their story and perspective on leadership and call you to action. Have you ever wanted to talk about a TED talk with people who've seen the same speaker? At U Lead We Lead, you get to listen to interesting talks by smart people and then talk about what you heard in small groups. Shine a light on teamwork, respect, responsibility, and civic engagement through dynamic reflection and rich conversation.

Think you'll be hungry? We know it's dinner time and we've got you covered.

As the Husky Leadership Initiative kick-off event for the year, U Lead We Lead: Cultivating Leadership helps your leadership skills take root. Nurture them by staying involved in Husky Leadership Initiative programs throughout the year. Learn what's going on through Facebook, Twitter, or our website.

The Husky Leadership Initiative has embarked upon a bold push to develop a new generation of leaders equipped with the knowledge, habits, and skills needed to be socially-responsible change-agents and effective community leaders in the 21st century.

Through Husky Leadership Initiative programs, students can learn about imperative issues of our time, discover what they care about, and act on that knowledge to benefit our local and global communities.
