The faculty of LeadAmerica conferences are university and graduate school professors and practicing professionals drawn from each field of study. They are carefully selected to ensure that our students receive the highest quality educational experience. Their role is to bring the core curriculum to life and stimulate thinking and discussion. Our faculty are involved in all aspects of the Conference experience, giving students a chance to spend time with them outside the classroom.
Our Team Leaders are assigned to groups of 12-18 students and facilitate simulations, discussions and other practical experiences. They inspire our students and serve as positive role models.
Team Leaders are college and graduate level students and adult professionals. Most have academic and/or work experience in the field of study. Many are pursuing degrees in education and have peer counseling, tutorial and leadership experience. In addition to their own experience, Team Leaders receive approximately 40 hours of LeadAmerica training.
