What is the LEP?

The Leadership Education Program (LEP) is a free program that provides Western undergrads with an opportunity to gain a wealth of knowledge that will help them become truly effective leaders. LEP is a series of workshops that cover three subjects: Individual Leadership, Group Leadership, and Community Leadership. Students receive a Letter of Accomplishment upon completion.

LEP is delivered in workshops divided into three tiers.

Tier 1: Individual Leadership

Tier 1 focuses on skills the individual needs to be an effective leader with workshops on: communication, public speaking, self- management, campus involvement, etc. Learn more.

Tier 2: Group Leadership

Tier 2 focuses on the skills a leader needs to effectively facilitate group processes with workshops on team building, facilitation, conflict management, etc. Learn more.

Tier 3: Community Leadership

Tier 3 is a service-learning placement in an organization of the student’s choice, and is built upon the foundation of the earlier tiers while collaborating with teams and making an impact in the London community. Learn more.

Successful completion of at least five workshops from a tier will be recognized with a Letter of Accomplishment in Individual Leadership (Tier 1), Group Leadership (Tier 2), or Community Leadership (Tier 3) signed by Dr. Amit Chakma, President of The University of Western Ontario.
