LEAD is Sigma Nu's award-winning ethical leadership development program. In alignment with Sigma Nu's continuing mission "To develop ethical leaders inspired by the values of Love, Honor, and Truth,” we offer the LEAD Program as a tool to assist our membership in both gaining knowledge and developing the skills and abilities needed to be an effective and ethical leader for life. The LEAD Program has been especially designed to ensure participants "learn by doing."
The acronym itself stands for Leadership Ethics Achievement Development, all of which have a special meaning which correspond to the program.
Leadership means having a vision, a sense of direction. It also means being able to focus that direction on effective ways to get you there. It includes helping others to have influence, power and initiative to support making the journey successful.
Ethics for us means putting Love, Honor and Truth into practice in every aspect of our life.
Achievement includes setting high standards of excellence for one’s own performance, being strongly motivated through personal goals and seeking feedback to correct the course of our endeavors.
Development has the special meaning of commitment to continuing improvement for self, others, chapter and the General Fraternity. We may not always be perfect, but we should strive to reach our fullest potential by seeking excellence.
The Mu Psi chapter of Sigma Nu Fraternity has multiple LEAD Sessions every single semester. From All-Chapter LEAD Sessions with facilitators from UCFPD, Local Legal Offices, The Student Academic Resource Center, Health and Wellness Services, Student Conduct, and LEAD Scholars, as well as LEAD sessions facilitated by chapter members on Recruitment, Stress, and Diversity. We also have LEAD Sessions with our freshman, sophomore, junior, and senior members on different topics from study habits and how to pick a major, to effective resume writing skills and how to nail an interview. It is our hope that these LEAD Sessions will help our members grow as individuals, and as an organization.
