Student affairs professionals and other university administrators play an essential role in coordinating, shaping, and evaluating the leadership development of students by designing leadership courses and programs, creating co-curricular opportunities, and utilizing emerging technologies. The Leadership Educators Institute (LEI) has a rich history of convening professionals committed to leadership development for nearly 10 years.
