Welcome to the LEAD Center!

The Leadership, Engagement, Advising, and Development (LEAD) Center is the University of California, Berkeley’s hub for leadership advising, programs, and initiatives. We support student organizations, undergraduate and graduate student government, fraternities and sororities, Cal Debate, The Student Environmental Resource Center, The Green Initiative Fund, and Campus-wide leadership programs.

Students can visit the LEAD Center for answers to general and specific questions about getting involved at Cal, leadership programs, student group funding, and advising. Whether students are thinking about joining their first organization, or they are seasoned officers, our team, specialized in the functional and topical areas of student activities, can help them navigate Cal and refine their leadership potential.
