Student Leadership Program

Leadership. Equity. Access. 
Development. Success. 

LEADS provides students from any SAIT program, with the knowledge and skill development opportunities to build their leadership capacity.

  • LEADS students work 3-5 hours per week in on-campus student leadership roles.
  • Student leaders will explore the foundations of leadership in training and workshops so they can develop their own leadership style.
  • They are given opportunities to enhance their communication skills as well as focus on their personal and interpersonal development.
  • Student leaders also learn strategies to support student mental health, safety and equity needs.

All student leadership roles provide students with opportunities to practice these leadership fundamentals in a supportive hands-on setting.
