About the Program

Thank you for your interest in Moc LEAD! Moc LEAD is the newest leadership experience at UTC, as it just launched during the 2017-2018 academic year. 

This experience is open to any undergraduate or graduate student in good standing with the institution. As a semester-long cohort based experience, semester I of Moc LEAD is designed to help students develop their individual leadership skills while semester II focuses on organizational leadership. Through interactive workshops led by faculty, staff, and community leaders, participants will focus on developing their leadership vision; recognize what motivates them to lead; identify their personality and communication preferences; learn time management strategies; discuss conflict resolution tactics; discuss how to navigate group dynamics; and have the opportunity to hone in on their public speaking skills. These workshops will prepare active participants for their next steps as leaders in their organizations, their communities, their jobs, and their future careers. 

Participants receive 10 Experiential Learning Points for completing each semester of Moc LEAD as part of the ThinkAchieve Program. Learn more about ThinkAchieve at .
