Leadership Education and Progress (LEAP)


Open to all students at The University of Texas at Austin, Leadership Education and Progress (LEAP) is a free leadership development program focused on building an ethical and socially responsible foundation of leadership.

This six-week workshop series provides the knowledge and tools to prepare students for leadership on the Forty Acres and beyond. This is an excellent opportunity for students to establish a professional network of peers, receive coaching from a peer mentor, and learn leadership practices.

  • Developing a foundation for leadership rooted in the Social Change Model
  • Learning to engage as an ethical and inclusive leader
  • Building a professional and social network of peers
  • Creating a leadership action plan to guide their student experience

LEAP meets once a week for six weeks, beginning on January 29th and February 1st, and culminates on March 23rd with a graduation celebration. Two session options are available to participants:

  • Mondays from 3:30 - 5 p.m.
  • Thursdays from 4 - 5:30 p.m.
