Certificate Program

We are excited you are interested in The LEAD Certificate Program. By attending various LEAD and ASU events throughout the academic year, you have the opportunity to earn a certificate in one (or more) of the following categories: Leadership Development, Academic Resiliency, and Mindful Living.

  • Leadership Development

    Earning a certificate in Leadership Development means a student has developed the skills necessary to recognize their own ability to lead themselves and others through attending various events that provide the space to practice those skills. Students will attend events on campus that challenge and encourage their own strengths as a leader.

  • Academic Resiliency

    Earning a certificate in Academic Resiliency means a student has attended events in order to grow their proficiency in an academic area, whether that be attending a writing center event or going to a workshop about how to improve study skills. Students will focus on their own academic success and gain a deeper understanding of what that means to them.

  • Mindful Living

    Earning a certificate in Mindful Living provides students the space to focus on self-care and mindfulness. Events students can attend in order to earn this certificate will focus on personal wellness; whether that be emotionally, physically, spiritually, or mentally. A mindful living certification will help students focus on their own habits and practices and evaluate those.

How do you earn a certificate?

There are multiple ways you can earn a certificate of recognition with The LEAD Program. The minimum requirement is by attending at least two (2) events in the Fall and two (2) events in the Spring semesters.

Attending additional events is encouraged and welcomed.

What events count towards the certificate program?

There is a list of events students can attend to earn recognition for the certificate program. The list is available under the Approved events tab and will be shared on various social media platforms.

How do you submit your attendance to an event to ensure you are recognized for it?

Complete the LEAD Certificate form for each approved event you attend. (Also located under the Submit attendance tab.)

Note: If you do not complete the form for each event attended, your submission will not be received nor recorded, thus it will not count towards the certificate program.
