Sophomore pLUnge

You are here

A small group of students will be selected to actively participate in connecting and applying high-impact experiences in the 5 Foundations for Student Success in relation to their goals. In the spring semester, students will join a cohort of peers for monthly meetings over a meal to explore their leadership skills and develop their project. By completing this, they will receive funding to implement their project or for a professional development opportunity to work towards implementation. This is a great opportunity to dive into your learning and think about how you want to make an impact at Lehigh!
