Curious about how leadership fits into the Honors College experience? Check out LEAD with Honors, a three-year certificate program that develops small, select groups of honors students into tomorrow’s change agents through the practice of leadership principles and group dynamics.
Solutions to the world’s complex problems require innovative people who translate ideas into action. LEAD with Honors is a three-year certificate program designed to develop you into an effective change agent for your career and community.
No. The purpose of LEAD is to cultivate leadership potential and demonstrate how to apply it to your personal and professional goals. The program identifies your leadership strengths, teaches you core leadership theories, introduces you to leaders in your field of interest, and culminates in a practicum that puts your leadership skills into action.
