The University of Texas Leadership and Ethics Institute (LEI) is a centralized, comprehensive leadership-training program for enrolled undergraduate and graduate students studying in any academic college, school or unit. Coordinated by Student Activities and Leadership Development (SALD), in the Office of the Dean of Students, LEI offers an array of experiential opportunities for students that incorporate both theoretical and practical ethical leadership development.
The Leadership Series is a series of workshops designed to develop both individual student leaders, as well as provide resources for growth and change within student organizations. The Leadership Series also offers a unique opportunity to obtain leadership certification by fulfilling specific requirements throughout the semester. Both individual students and student organizations can become certified through this program. The workshop schedule and additional details can be found at http://deanofstudents.utexas.edu/glie/lei/leadership_series.php.
LEI Leadership Training for Organizations presents an opportunity for student organizations to request leadership training workshops that focus on a topic of their choice. LEI peer leaders are trained on a variety of leadership topics and can cater a unique presentation to meet each organization’s needs. Available topics range from communication to social justice. Organizations can request training via an online request form at http://deanofstudents.utexas.edu/sald/leadership_training_request.php.
LEI Committees offer students an opportunity to help coordinate LEI programs like LEAP, the Leadership Series, and the Evening of the Stars. There are four LEI committees, and each one is recruiting new members this fall! Detailed information about each committee, as well as information about how to join can be found at http://deanofstudents.utexas.edu/sald/leadership_committees.php.
