Leadership Development

UNT Dallas has a very diverse student population with unique backgrounds and experience. Studies show that aside from academic support, social support plays a major role in student retention. The core of the social support that UNT Dallas provides students is the opportunity to grow and develop as leaders. Student leadership programs help students engage, explore and elevate the entirety of their college experience so they may flourish as individuals and become life-long contributors to strengthened and empowered communities. Student leadership programs examine leadership from three different perspectives: Self, Team and Community. The ultimate goal is that through the leadership programs, UNT Dallas students will graduate with a greater capacity to be leaders in their chosen careers and respective communities.
