Servant Leader Scholar Program

The Servant Leader Scholar Program (SLSP) is sponsored by the Student Leadership, Involvement and Community Engagement (SLICE) program, housed in the Student Life Office (SSCB 1.204). The SLSP recognizes students who participate in leadership development and complete community service hours during their matriculation at University of Houston-Clear Lake.

If you have any questions, please contact slice@uhcl.edu

To participate in the SLSP, you are required to:

  • Fill out the SLSP Application and register for the program.
  • Log your Service Hours on your own.

Students in the Gold and Platinum categories must complete the 4 required (*) leadership workshops:
