Three Levels to Pursue

Leadership Challenge: Engage Self, Others, and the Future!

Leadership Challenge Program is an institution-wide commitment to offer all UNCG students leadership education, training,
and development through curricular and co-curricular experiences.  These experiences assist students in the development of leadership skills through varied leadership experiences and prepare students to serve as citizen-leaders in a global community.  Leadership development also seeks to engage students in the process of leadership through community engagement and service-learning.

The program is designed out of the Leadership Framework.  The framework is a format
which guides UNCG students in their personal and professional development for life-long leadership.

Bronze: Engage Self

The Bronze level is a road map which promotes life-long and self-directed leadership development.  You will learn to develop and refine your personal leadership philosophy through participation in workshops, service initiatives, learning resources, and group leadership coaching.


Sliver: Engage Others

Participating students have the opportunity to practice their leadership philosophy, reflect and refine their understanding of leadership as it relates to working with others.  Silver participants receive one-on-one coaching, work on personal growth initiatives,and will learn how their actions impact themselves and the community surrounding them.


Gold: Engage Future

Participating students “Engage the Future” through the creation of a leadership service-learning project that integrates personal and professional interests, the community, and developing leadership in others.  Students select an organization, group, or “cause” for which they can apply the leadership concepts and skills learned through the Leadership Challenge program to improve a real situation in a particular community.  Participants are responsible for identifying a need (with the assistance of the organization), developing alternative solutions to meet the need, selecting an alternative to implement, implementing the solution, and evaluating the result.
