Leadership Development within the Department of Student Life and Services provides a variety of programs and services to assist students in developing their leadership potential. All students have their own leadership style. Thus, our philosophy is based on a new way of thinking about leadership that emphasizes process over position, and encourages everyone to consider how they can make a positive change in the world. Leadership Development principles at UHV are guided by the Social Change Model of Leadership Development, which illustrates the development of an individual through self-knowledge (understanding one's talents, values and interests as it relates to one's capacity to provide effective leadership skills) and demonstrates enhanced student learning resulting from leadership competence (the capacity to mobilize oneself and others to serve and work collaboratively).
Students are encouraged to contact us with any questions or needs they may have. We are located in Jaguar Hall, suite 1135. Our hours are 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Contact Hilary Kofron at 361-485-4409 for more information.
