Welcome to Leadership Council!

Leadership Council is a monthly meeting that all Registered Student Organization (RSOs), Classes, and Program Student Government Associations’ Officers are invited to attend. Each RSO, Class and Student Government must send at least one (1) officer to the monthly meeting. The meetings are held the third Monday of the month from September thru April. Each year there is a theme and each session relates to the chosen theme and important leadership skills that will help officers in their current roles and beyond.

Leadership Council is coordinated  by AcademyV  under the direction of the Office of Student Development.

“[Leadership is] about creating a values-based umbrella large enough to accommodate the various interests of followers, but focused enough to direct their energies in pursuit of a common good.” (O’Toole, 1996, p. xi)

We invite you to actively engage with us as we explore what that means as a student leader at UNTHSC!

Reminder: All governments, classes and student organizations are required to have at least one (1) representative at each meeting. 

Please Register on the OrgSync Calendar. 

If you have any questions, please stop by the Office of Student Development located in SSC 204 or email StudentLeadershipPrograms@unthsc.edu or call 817-735-5006
