L.E.A.D. Program

Normandale's L.E.A.D Program is a comprehensive experiential learning program that provides teambuilding and leadership challenges to its participants. It focuses on leaderhship, excellence, action, and development. The program consists of various team challenge initiatives that are rooted in the experiential learning process, in which students are presented with problem-solving situations and are challenged in a supportive environment. After each activity, the facilitator discusses with the group what they learned and how it can be applied to their group and their lives. Learning outcomes for each activity align with the core competencies from "On Course: Strategies for Creating Sucess in College and in Life," used in our NCC1000 courses.

The L.E.A.D. Program is designed specifically for each unique group and is a great compliment to any course curriculum and an engaging way to strengthen clubs or teams. For more in formation please contact Justin Martin at or Aimee Bolton at
