2021 LEAD Showcase

Welcome to the LEAD Student Showcase!

LEAD provides first-year students at ASU the opportunity to build relationships with their classmates, upper-classmen mentors, and their faculty through small classes. In these classes, students not only learn traditional course learning outcomes, but also get to build the skills employers are seeking such as critical thinking, teamwork, leadership, and communication. Students have worked in teams to not only define a problem, but also pitch a solution. This is a culminating project that highlights the many skills these students have developed over the course of their first year in college. We hope you enjoy exploring their work and appreciate any feedback you can provide for them.
