Lead Out Initiative
What is Lead Out?
Jesus Christ ministered to individuals from all different walks of life, socioeconomic statuses, religious backgrounds, ethnic backgrounds, ages, and political persuasions. The woman at the well, the leper, the blind man, the paralytic, the widow and her son, Jairus’ daughter, the woman with the issue of blood, the woman taken in adultery, Lazarus, and the list goes on.
Students from underrepresented backgrounds may not come to campus with the same networks, resources, and experiences to navigate, find, and take advantage of university opportunities.
In an effort to attend to the unique needs of students from underrepresented populations, student leaders working with the Lead Out initiative facilitate collaborative relationships across campus and organize efforts to create safety and community.
Lead Out Objectives
2. Collaborate with underrepresented student-led initiatives, clubs, and BYU departments or colleges to create and improve a more inclusive community for students

“Today, I call upon our members everywhere to lead out in abandoning attitudes and actions of prejudice.”
