LEW II group2

Leadership Empowerment Weekend

Leadership Empowerment Weekend will take place on April 7-8, 2017.

Leadership Empowerment Weekend (LEW) provides 30 engineering student leaders from Pi Sigma Pi, NSBE, and SHPE with the opportunity to enhance leadership skills. The two-day program includes lectures, workshops and planning sessions that focus on the skills necessary for developing successful student leaders and active diversity student organizations on campus.

Pi, NSBE, and SHPE officers conduct interactive brainstorming sessions where they review goals, evaluate old programs and develop new initiatives for the upcoming year. The sessions also facilitate interaction between upper-division student leaders and younger officers.
