In its 17th year, Leadership UNK exposes participants to leadership opportunities at UNK and in the Kearney area, enhances their leadership skills and encourages them to accept leadership roles in the future. The program also increases their knowledge of the university system and gives them an opportunity to network with classmates, speakers and others while discussing issues pertinent to campus and leadership development.
Throughout the academic year, participants attend nine half-day sessions and one full-day meeting that examine various aspects of leadership within the University of Nebraska System. They’re also required to complete at least four hours of volunteer service on campus. There is no cost to participate.
