Leadership Programs

If you can lead, you can succeed. 

Hawk Leadership Institute

The Hawk Leadership Institute (HLI) is a unique learning community for incoming first-year students at UHCL. Through exciting and interactive workshops, retreats, and supportive peer teams, you can gain hands-on experience to learn how to implement exemplary leadership. Guided activities help you recognize and/or clarify your values and better understand how you interact within diverse contexts.

You can also learn about your strengths, effective teamwork, and how to succeed in and outside of the classroom and in your future career. Through networking with other leaders on and off campus, you have access to campus leadership roles and opportunities to positively influence your community. As an HLI student, you’ll gain the leadership edge to help you succeed in college and beyond.
