U-Lead 2020: Virtual Leadership

U-Lead is the annual pre-semester Miami Bound program hosted by the Harry T. Wilks Institute for Leadership & Service. This program is designed for incoming first-year students to build community and explore their leadership style. 

For U-Lead 2020, we've created an innovative virtual experience! We are confident that this new format will be meaningful for all of our participants. 

The biggest change to the program is a shift in date. U-Lead 2020 will now take place from Tuesday, August 11th to Thursday, August 13th via Zoom. Please review our detailed schedule. With the change to a virtual format, we have removed the $125 participation fee. 

If you have questions, don't hesitate to contact us at wilksleadership@miamioh.edu

We are excited to help you #InspireAction. 

U-Lead is an engaging experience designed to introduce incoming students to everything their Miami experience has in store for them. U-Leaders learn about leadership through exploring values based leadership, team building activities, community engagement, and more! Participants will have time to think about extracurricular involvement and leadership opportunities so they can maximize their time at Miami! U-Leaders will form meaningful connections with peers, find leadership opportunities at Miami and explore the broader Oxford community.

U-Lead participants develop meaningful connections and build support networks with other incoming first year students, current student leaders, and staff at Miami. This program is run by undergraduate student leaders, take a look at our 2020 team!
