Husky Leadership Certificate


The Husky Leadership Certificate (HLC) program is designed to facilitate student reflection on their leadership learning and development.  Recognizing that reflection is critical to the leadership development process, the Husky Leadership Certificate program guides students to reflect upon their leadership development journey throughout their undergraduate education and articulate their understanding to a larger audience. To maximize their learning, each student is matched with a UW faculty, staff or alumni mentor who helps the student reflect upon and give voice to their leadership growth.  

Students create a leadership e-portfolio that articulates and integrates what they have learned about leadership, who they have become as a leader and how they hope to continue to make their unique contributions in their communities.  E-portfolios are designed to align with the Student Leadership Competencies (Seemiller, 2014), a set of research-based knowledge, values, abilities and behaviors that college graduates need for their early careers.  

Student leadership happens inside and beyond the classroom.  The Husky Leadership Certificate program celebrates the varied and expansive forms of student engagement that develops their leadership potential, skills and knowledge.  Leaders are change-agents, entrepreneurs, scholars, activists, athletes, educators, researchers and more.
