Leadership Education and Progress (LEAP) is a first-year leadership development experience that provides an opportunity for participants to interact with mentors and build a theoretical foundation for ethical leadership practices.
Students participate in an eight-week workshop series which includes a kick-off event, a social, and a graduation.
Participants, often referred to as LEAPers, will have the opportunity to meet influential leaders in the UT community and develop personal leadership skills, as well as create a large network amongst fellow student leaders.
Through the LEAP experience, LEAPers will gain:
- A theoretical foundation for leadership based on the Social Change Model.
