Leadership Honors Program

The Leadership Honors Program is a leadership development program that emphasizes four core areas:

  • Leadership Knowledge
  • Self Awareness
  • Leadership Practice
  • Global Perspective

The program ensures that students have a comprehensive leadership experience that prepares them to be ethical, global-minded leaders.

How does it work?

The Leadership Honors Program is a four-tiered program, which helps facilitate your involvement at UTA and allows you to make the most of your college experience. By following the curriculum of the program, students stay in the know regarding key events and programs on campus that enable them to become well rounded individuals, personally and professionally in leadership development. The Leadership Honors Program promotes a student’s success as they progress through each tier of the program within their time at the University. Requirements before completing the emerging (foundational) stage of the program include: joining an organization, attending the Certified Leaders Institute, and attending 2 personal management workshops or programs.

Being a part of The Leadership Center has helped me grow into a successful, influential, and well-respected leader on the UT Arlington campus. The programs offered through the center have helped mold me into a confident public speaker and organized student as well as enhanced my ability to view life from different perspectives, thinking widely "out-of-the-box".
