LEDA Career Institute at Princeton guides high-achieving, low-income college students on path to professional leadership


It’s 9 a.m. sharp on a Monday in mid-August on the Princeton University campus – but there aren’t any T-shirts, shorts or flip-flops in sight in an auditorium in the Friend Center. The attentive audience of college students are dressed in an understated palette of collared shirts and ties, tailored skirts, pressed slacks, Oxford shoes and closed-toe sandals.

Hailing from 41 colleges and universities across the country, 152 students are participating in the Leadership Enterprise for a Diverse America (LEDA) Career Institute. The five-day intensive course of workshops, presentations and networking opportunities is designed to hone interviewing, job search and leadership skills.
