LEAD 212 Class Leaders

We are searching for our next community of LEAD 212 Class Leaders!

Class Leader applications are due by Wednesday, February 13 at noon. Please complete the online application using this Qualtrics survey.
For detailed information about the position and to preview the application please review this packet. In addition to completing the application you must attend one of the interview dates on February 15 or February 17 from 2:30-5:00pm.

LEAD 212 Class Leaders are students who help teach the large lecture sections of LEAD 212 - Introduction to Leadership Concepts. LEAD 212 Class Leaders are asked to facilitate small group discussions, lead active-learning exercises, create a learning community with their students and perform administrative functions (such as grading, attendance, etc). These students serve as a bridge between students and instructors - they are motivated to help first semester freshmen learn the academic discipline of leadership and adjust to the K-State campus community.


In fall 2019 LEAD 212 will transition from a 2-credit hour to a 3-credit hour class. This means classes will take place on M/W/F for 50 minute periods. We look forward to working with our Class Leaders as we build a learning environment that addresses these changes, and are eager to see students and Class Leaders more frequently each week.

The minimum qualifications for LEAD 212 Class Leaders are:
• Good academic (minimum 2.75 cumulative GPA) and disciplinary standing.

• Have previously taken a LEAD 212 or equivalent introduction to leadership course; and have taken/currently enrolled in LEAD 350.
