Career & Leadership Programs
Investing in Tomorrow's Business Leaders... Today
Career & Leadership Programs supports the personal and professional development of students through knowledge and experiential opportunities to enhance the undergraduate experiences and beyond.
A cornerstone of our mission is to instill dynamic leadership skills in our students. We facilitate this by offering participation in numerous student organizations where undergraduates seize the leadership reins. The projects and ventures Heavener students direct make a real difference at UF and in the community. CLP Staff are available to work with student organizations and individual students in gaining and utilizing these critical leadership skills demanded by employers and graduate programs.
