A Leadership Program Created for Students by Students

R.I.S.E. is a leadership program created by UT Tyler students and sponsored by the Office of Leadership and Service. What does R.I.S.E. stand for? Reflect. Impact. Serve. Engage.

This program will allow for students who attend to engage with peers who have similar leadership goals, create an impact on the community through an on-campus service project, and reflect on their experiences.

Support: Productivity's Advocate

When we support others, they tend to be happier and in turn become more productive. In this session, learn how you can provide support to others and increase their overall productivity.


Accountability = Respect

Accountability is twofold: accountability for yourself and others. When you hold yourself accountable, your performance will improve, your relationships will flourish and people’s respect for you will skyrocket. In this session, learn how you can hold yourself accountable, and how holding one another accountable creates an atmosphere of respect.

Manage People or Manage Tasks?

Leadership styles vary from person to person, and two of the most common leadership styles are task-oriented and people-oriented. In this session you will learn the pros and cons of both and which one works best with you.

Personal growth is something everyone does for the entirety of their life. In this session, we will explore what personal growth means and how, as leaders, we can continue to grow and reach our full potential.
