What makes LEAD unique

The LEAD Project provides a smaller size learning environment with about 20-30 students in each cohort, which is a term for a set of three classes with the same group of students together, in a given time slot that you sign up for. This provides an environment for creating a more personal bond with classmates as well as professors, allowing the chance to know one another on a first name basis. The smaller class environment promotes higher learning retention, study groups, and support of one another through group interactions and discussion. LEAD not only gives you the general education information you need when you are an undergrad but also applies workforce skills into the daily agenda so that you are prepared and become successful in your jobs during and after college by applying the skills you gained, as well as knowing how to approach life after you graduate. Plus you can put everything you learned, such as the ones down below, on your resume!
