Leadership, Education, & Development (LEAD) Program

Do you want to make a difference on your campus? 
Are you ready to share your leadership story? 

Are you involved with NACURH and NRHH? 

The LEAD Program promotes and recognizes the outstanding achievement of an individual’s student leadership development throughout their collegiate career.

A person who has completed the LEAD program is said to have earned their "NACURH Links."

We are all LEADers. Start your journey today.

The LEAD Program's content has been recently restructured! If you began the LEAD Program, you may continue on your next level with the restructured program. The Links can be found below. We hope to see you participate!

Questions? Email Nick, the NACURH Corporate Office CO for Resources and Development at nco_resources@nacurh.org. 

Your advisor must approve your submitted Link before it can be approved by the NACURH Corporate Office. Your advisor will receive an email from the NCO with an approval link and then, a follow-up from the NCO once you have been officially approved.

You must submit Links One and Two two weeks prior to your Regional Leadership/Business Conferences to receive your certificate at said conferences. Link Three recipients are awarded at the NACURH Annual Conference annually. If you are not present, a representative from your institution will pick up your certificate.

For inspiration and ideas while working on your Links, check out The Helpful Guide to LEAD (found here)!
