Leadership, University & You

This Residential Learning Community brings together students living in Lewis Residence Hall, who have an interest in taking a specially designed section of UNIV 101.


Leadership, University & You is a Learning Community focused on leadership and society, career and leadership development, and the role of leadership at KU. Field trips, visitors, projects, and discussions help students understand how and where they can learn about and become involved with leadership on and off campus. Using critical and intersecting lenses, course readings and assignments challenge students to think about the varied roles that leadership plays in our lives.


UNIV 101

The two-credit-hour UNIV 101 or Orientation Seminar course associated with this Learning Community is small, enrolling about 19 students. In addition to addressing issues concerning leadership, students develop capacities and have learning experiences that will transfer to a variety of campus and life contexts. By becoming a part of the Leadership, University & You community, you will come to know campus better, will more fully understand your individual and team strengths, will practice and develop critical thinking skills, will learn about information literacy and research, and will gain memorable experiences. 

This section of UNIV 101 will be taught by the Student Involvement and Leadership coordinator for leadership programs.
