Welcome to the Urban Leadership Program
Know More - Do More - Be More -Lead
The Urban Leadership Program was created to enhance the leadership experience at MSU Denver. Each academic year, we will select a group of students to participate in the program. The program consists of coursework and experiential learning components. Selected students receive a scholarship in addition to training and networking opportunities.
These students will explore and examine leadership and how they can better lead our Denver Metro Community through:
- Self-Exploration and Understanding
- Understanding of Groups and Others
- Understanding of our Communities through Mentoring and Service
Development: Leadership is a process and is learned over time. College is one of the best times to practice and learn about leadership and MSU Denver is dedicated to facilitating students’ abilities to become leaders.
Inclusiveness: Inclusive leadership is accessible to those interested and able to make the commitment. The ULP will use models and experiences from many cultures and disciplines.
Relevance: To ensure relevance, leadership programs are based in real-world experiences such as careers, family, and service experiences.
Social Responsibility: The ULP is grounded in a belief in doing the right thing. Ethical development and service to others are key components of leadership and of this program.
