The L:EAD Academy is a brand new leadership development program at Arkansas Tech. It is designed to prepare students to take on leadership roles within the campus, community, and in their futures by discovering individual strengths and applying leadership techniques. Each of the three phases allow students to examine how they approach leadership and learn skills to enhance their experiences.
The Emerging Phase is a seven week program designed to let students experience a hands on leadership exercise and discover their strengths as well as how to interact with others' strengths. The Emerging Phase is offered each fall and must be completed before students may complete the Advancing or Developing phases.
The Advancing Phase is the second phase of the program and is open to those who have completed the Emerging Phase. It is a seven week program offered each spring to help students advance their skills as a leader with emphasis on cultivating successful relationships.
The Developing Phase is the third, and final, phase of the program. Students participating in this phase must have completed both the Emerging and Advancing Phases. This seven week program offered each fall challenges students to develop the skills they learned in the previous stages into their own personal leadership identity.
