Leadership Honors Program


The Leadership Honors Program is a multi-year, flexible leadership development program that emphasizes and facilitates student on-campus involvement and leadership growth. The program ensures that students have a comprehensive leadership experience that prepares them to be ethical, global-minded leaders.


The Leadership Honors Program (LHP) helps students to make the most of their college experience. By following the program curriculum, students stay in-the-know regarding key events and programs on campus that enable them to become well-rounded individuals, both personally and professionally, in leadership development. LHP promotes a student’s success as they progress through each tier of the program within their time at the University. It enhances other organizational involvement, as most activities done with other student or department organizations can be transferred for credit in the Leadership Honors Program.

"The Leadership Honors Program is one of the most awesome and respectful programs on campus. It is a program that not only builds and enhances a student's leadership skills, but also inspires them to have a vision and encourages them to achieve something wonderful, each and every day. LHP can completely pull a student out of their shell. Although I am a new-comer to this program, I personally feel that LHP has helped me, boosted me, and guided me to achieve greatness. The Leadership Honors Program is truly a one-of-a-kind program and I would highly recommend it to all Mavericks.  #JoinLHP #BeALeader #LHPMavs"
