Jepson School of Leadership Studies Class Year Videos


Each spring, the Jepson School captures reflections and insights from the graduating class in a short video that features almost every student graduating with a leadership studies major.

The videos are a hallmark for the School’s Finale program and provide a historical snapshot of the graduating class, representing each student’s unique experience, journey, and affinity for the School.

Below are class videos dating from 2014, the first year the School started recording them. Also, immediately below is a list of 2020 leadership studies graduates who won School, University, and national awards during the 2019-20 academic year.
