Student Leader Roundtable

The University Honors Program believes in the power of a community that brings together students from all disciplines to help solve the world's complex problems.

UHP students are leaders in almost every aspect of the campus and local community, so we are providing a space for UHP student leaders across campus to collaborate with and learn from each other. Students will navigate the challenges and opportunities in leading student groups in today’s constantly changing landscape.

The Student Leader Roundtable is a semester-long commitment. This pre-approved experience is offered each fall and spring and students receive one honors experience for full participation. This experience is fully student-driven and will cover topics chosen by the group each semester.

Interested? Please contact Vikki Kowalczyk (Vikki.kowalczyk@uc.edu) for additional questions. 


The bi-weekly time will be decided at the beginning of the semester based on the group’s availability. Meetings are for 1 hour and students must attend the full hour each week. To complete the experience, students must attend at least 6 of the 7 meetings.

Students can repeat the experience to count for up to two UHP experiences and are welcome to participate more than twice for self-development. Participation in any type of UHP roundtable counts towards the maximum 2 experiences.

Students complete the interest form for the semester they wish to participate. The interest form will be available mid-August for fall and early January for spring.

Students must complete the interest form each semester they want to participate.

Students must be in a leadership role to participate. We look forward to having you when you hold a position with an organization.
