Leadership development is one of the pillars of an Honors College education. We offer diverse leadership opportunities within the college and aim to assist students in advancing their leadership potential. We urge every student to take advantage of these roles and resources. You have the power to make an impact on your community from your very first semester.
Academic Leadership Programs
Honors College academic leadership programs provide a structured environment in which Honors College students can experiment with team building and mentorship strategies. In these unique leadership laboratories, students discover and cultivate their essential leadership skills, while receiving invaluable feedback from peers and faculty. All this while having a profound and widespread influence on the Honors community.
Collaborating, recruiting, planning, inspiring, uniting—Honors College student leaders are the glue of our scholarly community. These groups and positions form the foundation for involvement within our network of students.
