Take charge of your ODU experience!

Every semester, you're taking classes that help you to learn the fundamentals of your major - concepts, theories, methodologies, practices, etc. While you're focusing on learning all of this content, who's focusing on helping you figure out what it all means for YOU and your goals?

LeADERS helps you find and complete high-impact courses and experiences that let you get the most out of your time at ODU. And along the way, we help you make sense out of these experiences: what you've gained from them, what you've learned about yourself, and how they help you advance your goals. As a LeADERS graduate, you'll leave the program with a comprehensive ePortfolio that showcases what you've learned and experienced, thus positioning you as a professional and/or scholar in your own right.

It's our way of living up to our tagline: High Impact Learning for a High Impact Future.
