The 2019 D.U. Lead Club Advisors
Meet the Advisors & Coordinators bringing D.U. Lead to you!
What is D.U. Lead?
D.U. Lead is an intensive weekend institute for emerging leaders in the Denison community. Limited to a select number of first-year students, the D.U. Lead institute aims to address and develop a variety of leadership skills.
D.U. Lead is about leading with integrity and “Making Your Mark” within the Denison Community to create and sustain positive change. D.U. Lead participants participate in fun, interactive activities and simulations in a lively, upbeat environment. The social change model of leadership development is the theoretical basis for this Institute. Participants work closely with 8-10 peers in small groups called “clubs.” Participants will be mentored by junior/senior students who serve as club facilitators.

My name is Jack Reaney ‘21, and I’ll be your sensei! My favorite food is eggs scrambled with chicken—just try it.
As a student, I’m vigorously committed to my academics. But as a Denisonian, I’m a dedicated leader in one cause: social revolution. I believe in a better tomorrow for Denison, and I’m not alone in my quest for a truly unified, fun-loving student body. I’m pumped to keep working toward positive change over the next two years here.
Hi, Class of 2023! My name is Lariona Jacobs, you can call me Lari, and I am a current Senior from Boston, Massachusetts. I came here on the POSSE Scholarship. My majors are Anthropology/Sociology and Communication and I hope to attend Law School next fall! I participated in D.U. Lead my first-year at Denison and I hope you enjoy your experience as did I!
I am a Spanish and International Studies major with a Cinema Minor tacked on. Fun fact: I have been robbed on 3 continents now, the most recent one being South America during my time studying abroad in Valparaiso, Chile. My interests include exploration of The Great Outdoors, dipping foods into sauces, and chilling. On campus I work at Off-Campus Study, I am the president of Denison Presbys, and I am an active member of DFS, The Doobie, Jam Band Club, and a couple other things. I do all of this addition to being a all-around lover and a great friend.
Hi! My name is Mayank Kumar, and I am a rising junior from Calcutta, India. I'm majoring in Political Science and minoring in Religion. On campus, I'm involved with student governance, the international students association, and greek life among other things. If I'm not enjoying a frozen hot chocolate at the Slayter Pit, you can find me in the library crying about my homework. Some things I enjoy doing include traveling, watching old Hollywood movies, and listening to sad indie music. DU Lead was so impactful for me and helped shape my Denison experience in so many ways. I am so excited to to be a DU Lead Club advisor and get to know you first years!
Hi everyone! My name Grace Klein and I am a sophomore from a super small town in Northeast Ohio called Edinburg (it's fine, nobody else knows what it is either). I'm a double major in Education and History and am involved in Club Volleyball, Denison Feminists, & Leadership Fellows here on campus. If I'm not immersed in homework or a show on Food Network, you can probably find me cheering on the Cavs, calling my mom, or eating too many cookies in Slayter. I'm so excited to be a D.U. Lead Co-Coordinator after having a great experience in the program myself and I can't wait to meet all of you!
