The Leadership Living Learning Center (LEAD LLC) is a four-year residential experience that challenges and equips students to live a more meaningful life, and to influence others to make a positive impact on their world. LEAD cultivates students' leadership ability by preparing them for and engaging them in hands on experiences and by providing continuous feedback and reflection on their leadership development.
Reprising Baylor's Leadership Fellows program, LEAD is one of Baylor's flagship living learning communities. LEAD intentionally connects Baylor's living and learning initiatives to its core commitment to leadership and service.
Believing that learning happens best in community, LEAD-LLC men will live together in Allen Residence Hall. LEAD-LLC women live together in adjacent Dawson Residence Hall.
All incoming students are required to enroll in LDS 1301 (Intro to Leadership) in the fall and LDS 2301 (Vocational Calling and Leadership) in the spring. All residents are required to complete at least 15 hours of community service each semester.
Each student is also assigned to a mentor group led by an upperclass student leader. These groups help to promote and encourage the community atmosphere as well as allow students to learn and grow in their leadership abilities on a smaller, more personal scale.
