The FIU LEAD Team are ambassadors for the Center for Leadership & Service. They do presentations at First Year Experience classes (SLS) and attend Orientations and University events on behalf of the office to promote all our wonderful programs, events and services. Their other main project is facilitating the weekend retreat portion of the Academy of Leaders (AOL) and presenting some Programs by Demand for student organizations. They are experts in everything CLS does and are motivated, enthusiastic and passionate FIU Panthers!
