Student Life and Leadership

Leadership Development

Leaders are developed through relationships, experiences, and a drive to be a positive change agent. The Office of Leadership & Service can help you achieve your goals and become a positive influence in your communities and our world.

Through various programs, the Office of Leadership & Service offers leadership development opportunities to students, faculty, staff, and the community. All programs that are housed within the office are centered on the foundations of the Social Change Model of Leadership Development.

A few programs are listed below so you can see what the Office of Leadership & Service has to offer.

Emerging Leaders Program

The ELP is our newest program and will kick-off in the Fall of 2014. This program will consist of three leadership workshops that will allow students to gain a better understanding of self, others, and community. The program will also consist of three live speaker broadcasts brought to you by the UT Tyler Chapter of The National Society of Leadership and Success. All students who register for this program and complete the requirements will earn an Emerging Leaders Certificate.
