Honors Leadership Program

The Honors Leadership Program enables high-achieving students to develop their leadership identity through an interdisciplinary program for all majors.

Our Mission

The mission of the Honors Leadership Program, in partnership with the Center for Leadership & Service and the Department of Educational Leadership & Policy Studies, is to provide students with a foundation in leadership theory and practice while giving them opportunities to develop their own leadership style through application and experience.

Core Values

  • Personal and social responsibility: HLP students develop an ethical style of leadership, which they use to serve others.
  • Community engagement: HLP students engage with their community, both as a group and individually.
  • Experiential learning: HLP students gain knowledge through both education and practice.
  • Diversity and inclusion: HLP students are respectful of others, learning to lead while valuing difference.
