LEAP Logo

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 first-year and transfer students to establish a professional network of peers, receive coaching from an upperclassmen mentor, and learn leadership practices from UT staff and Austin community leaders.

Participants in the LEAP program will benefit from:

  • 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
