LEAD is an acronym for Leadership, Ethics, Achievement, Development, Sigma Nu's membership education program. While learning about the history, heritage, and values of Sigma Nu, participants in LEAD experience activities and educational sessions led by chapter officers, local alumni, and General Fraternity staff members on topics such as project leadership, group decision making, and principle-centered leadership. Leadership skill development, styles of leadership, conflict resolution, and financial responsibility are additional topics of discussion in the LEAD Program. These programs assist students in developing ethical leadership practices. Sigma Nu prepares members for life after college by providing them with the leadership qualities and skills that employers continually seek. Pursuing excellence in ethical leadership development is one way that Sigma Nu contributes positively to the campus and the community and offers benefits to each member.
