In partnership with faculty and leadership liaisons across all six colleges, TLI identifies courses that have rigorous leadership objectives, and provides advising for students seeking to enroll in courses that will engage and enhance their leadership development. Students have over 50+ leadership electives to choose from throughout all of the six colleges at UNF. Not only do these courses meet requirements for students’ majors, but leadership elective courses also include core leadership competencies that advance student learning. Students have options to choose electives within their own college, or explore courses outside of their major that will give them additional knowledge and skills in various leadership context. Students craft their own course of study, creating the opportunity to develop and apply leadership philosophy while pursuing their personal development and professional aspirations.
Leadership learning outcomes and their related indicators are grounded in the literature on student leadership learning in higher education as well as integration with UNF's goals, values, and commitment to community-based learning. When studying and practicing leadership, students identify specific learning outcomes associated with curricular and co-curricular activities on and off campus.
In an ongoing effort to continue our pursuit of excellence and provide every opportunity for our students to succeed, TLI offers a student leadership scholarship each year to a qualifying candidate.
