Southwestern Launches LEAD Program

It takes more than classroom knowledge alone to achieve our goals in life. 

For over 150 years, Southwestern has trained college students on the principles of leadership and community impact. These principles are now being shared with young people through a new program called LE∆D.

LE∆D is a program designed to help young people gain the skills and character they need to achieve their goals in life. The program spotlights Life skills, Education, Accountability, and Difference-making in the community — preparing students for success both before and after graduation.


Your membership includes up to 6 user profiles. Enjoy an engaging video library on success principles, take leadership courses, utilize educational resources, book meetings with program mentors, and explore member opportunities.


Our LE∆D Growth Book dives into fundamental leadership principles the program spotlights. Answer the prompts in your Growth Book, step up to the social challenges, and tag us in your posts! @southwesternlead


Enjoy monthly conversations with our LE∆D Mentors. LEΔD Mentors are the not-so-secret ingredient that makes our program exceptional. They are the ones who keep members engaged, build and maintain relationships, and help the LEΔD program to be both an educational and an enjoyable experience.


Available via is full access to our academic service Southwestern Global Academy. This service offers over 4,000 step-by-step tutorial videos on all required subjects. Also included is access to Advantage Topic Source – a valuable report and research-writing resource for the most commonly-assigned nonfiction report topics covered in expert detail. 


In the ‘Difference’ part of our program, members have the ability to nominate deserving families in the community for free access to our online educational resources. We provide the tools; you provide the action.


By demonstrating action and understanding around the principles spotlighted in LE∆D, members can receive a letter of recommendation that can be used when applying for colleges, scholarships, and jobs. This letter is written by Dr. Ralph Brigham, the former president of the National Association of Colleges & Employers, and also serves as a certificate in leadership training. LE∆D members are also guaranteed an interview with Southwestern’s Sales & Leadership Program for university students and recent graduates.
