Welcome to the Ignite Leadership Program! Housed in the Center for Student Involvement, the Ignite program is a foundational leadership development program for UH students who want to develop their leadership skills and become a part of a positive leadership community.
This semester-long workshop series provides the knowledge and tools to prepare students for leadership in the UH community and beyond. This is an excellent opportunity for students to establish a professional network of peers, receive coaching from an upperclassmen mentor, and learn leadership practices from UH Staff and Houston community leaders. Through the cohort model, Ignite mentors guide small groups through the program and create positive relationships and a supportive environment.
This semester Ignite will take place in person.
Email Kristine Cross if you have any questions.
