“ I went to LeadUF with no expectations in mind and it ended up being one of the most truthful experiences I’ve had at UF. Everyone there was genuine with their intentions and just wanted to grow together. I learned so much about myself and my peers, I feel very grateful for taking a chance on this great opportunity.”
There are two ways to experience the LeadUF journey. As a participant or a peer leader.
LeadUF is designed to provide participants with skills to make positive change and become a leader at the University of Florida. The LeadUF program will incorporate large group activities, small group discussions, reflection, mentorship, and time to connect with other leaders.
