L.E.A.D. Fellows Program

In 2019, OID launched a new program – Leaders Engaged in Advancing Diversity (L.E.A.D.) – to provide opportunities to empower and educate TTU staff in each of the University's eleven Colleges, the University Libraries, and the School of Law on diversity-related issues so that L.E.A.D. Fellows can spark change by fostering cultural awareness within their own areas of the university. OID hosts this program in order to give L.E.A.D. Fellows the strategies and resources needed to initiate new and innovative diversity programs within their respective colleges.

While the L.E.A.D. Fellows program is focused on the staff in each College, it affects all faculty, staff, and students in each College insofar as creation, development, support for, and implementation of new and innovative programs promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion are made available in each College.

Activities/Events promoted by L.E.A.D. Fellows include a college-wide campus climate survey, establishment of diversity committees within several TTU colleges, diversity programming for staff, faculty, and students, and conversations/discussions about diversity and equity on the TTU campus.
