About the Program

Leadership UGA, established in 1985, provides students the opportunity to develop their leadership skills, interact with campus and community leaders, and become more aware of the  issues facing our campus, community, state, nation, and world.

Hosted in collaboration with the UGA Career Center, Leadership UGA: Lifelong Leaders is a cohort-based program designed for experienced undergraduate student leaders who are interested in further exploring leadership as a lifelong practice and career skill. Key program features include an opportunity to participate in 1:1 strengths coaching, an alumni leadership panel, and an introduction to career development resources. By participating in Leadership UGA: Lifelong Leaders, students will:

  1. Analyze their strengths and areas for further development as it relates to their leadership practice.
  2. Identify their purpose and unique contributions as a leader.
  3. Integrate learning into a personalized development plan for ongoing leadership learning.
