LEAD@Oneonta is a comprehensive leadership program based on current research and guidelines from the Council for the Advancement of Standards in Higher Education. All students can choose to participate in the LEAD program, which aims to better prepare them for life after college by providing a comprehensive picture of leadership and the skills needed to be a good leader.

Students can attain a silver, gold or platinum level. To attain each level, students must meet a mix of programmatic and experiential leadership requirements, including completion of online courses, attendance at educational events, and membership and leadership in one or more of SUNY Oneonta’s more than 100 student-run clubs and organizations.

Recipients of SUNY Oneonta’s LEAD Silver Level are students committed to improving themselves and enhancing their knowledge by exploring leadership opportunities and participating in campus organizations. Completion of this level requires attending 12 events designated with a learning outcome (one must be a diversity event), actively participating in two recognized organizations, and completing an online Foundations of Leadership Course (average of 47 hours to complete).
