In the first module, students are introduced to the Leadership Education and Development Program, classroom expectations, and the topics covered throughout. To assess students’ previous knowledge of leadership, they are asked to define the term as a classroom using their previous notions. Concepts such as passion and the power of one are discussed to build foundation and ignite enthusiasm. The definition of leadership, as provided by Dr. Peter G. Northouse, is given. Students will be introduced to the different elective programs offered within LEAD, and consider their preference. Ultimately, the module serves to spark curiosity, creativity, and passion for LEAD.
