Titan Leadership Program

The Titan Leadership Program occurs each Spring Semester. The application process takes place the preceding Fall Semester starting around the beginning of November and applicants to the program are notified of their acceptance to the program just before Winter Break. Applications for  the program will be posted here to be completed online when the application process begins in the Fall.

TLP is designed to engage program participants in experiences that allow them to discover, develop, implement, evaluate, and reflect upon skills and competencies associated with leadership.  Program activities will synergize with the participants' ongoing campus involvement as individuals explore their values, and how they can apply their strengths to help and lead others.
