Husky Leadership Initiative

Learning Leadership Theory and Practice

Our principle belief is that UW students can be the architect of their leadership development journeys in college.  Aligning with this principle, we are offering a new course that is designed to serve as a learning laboratory for first year students to each develop their leadership potential.  Through engaging lectures, small leadership labs, interactive exercises and online games, this course will offer students a customized experience into developing their leadership capacity.
