Freshman LEAD & Task Force Freshmen

Freshmen LEAD offers leadership development, community service, and networking opportunities to first-year students at the University of Louisville.  Participants are introduced to leadership skills that expand their social networks and broaden their horizons through meeting a dynamic group of friends, which promotes a sense of community and encourages students to build upon their leadership potential.

Task Force Freshmen (TFF) is a similar leadership program, but with a focus on preparing students for leadership roles in student government. Participants in TFF will benefit from a mentoring experience which will allow them the opportunity to work alongside students in the highest leadership positions on campus. TFF includes leadership seminars, networking opportunities, and hands-on experience working with officers in the Student Government Association, Student Activities Board, and Engage Lead Serve Board.

Participants in both programs will meet bi-weekly over the course of the academic year and will be required to attend special events, such as fall and spring retreats. A detailed list of requirements for both programs is available on the online application. (Applications available in August.)

Selection for LEAD and TFF is competitive and interviews will be granted based on the following criteria:

  • Content of completed application
  • Resume
  • Letter of Interest
  • Perceived interest in the program
  • Ability to complete the program requirements (schedule, assignments, service, etc.)
