This eight-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
