PLPers @ El Pomar Retreat

Leadership for a Future Worth Living

 "PLP has opened up the future for many of us in one way or the other. By implementing a multi-faceted curriculum in, out, and beyond the program, we are able to pull from each others' skills and passions. Through learning the fundamentals of leadership and applying them into community change initiatives, a larger world has been opened to us. Putting the best of the best on campus together in residence hall living and in the leadership classroom is guaranteed to produce results."

Jessica Hunter, PLP Alum (Class of 2009)


The Pioneer Leadership Program (PLP) at the University of Denver promotes strong leadership through intellectual engagement, personal development opportunities, and engaged service in the community.  The program combines an academic minor in Leadership Studies and a first year living and learning component, allowing students to share residential and academic experiences. 


"PLP has opened doors to my future through partnerships with the leaders both students and professionals throughout the Denver community."

Jason Lundberg, PLP Alum (Class of 2009)


Students in the Pioneer Leadership Program earn a minor in Leadership Studies.  This immersion in leadership training and experiences provides students with a broad preparation for their careers and lives after graduation.  The program advances students understanding of themselves as leaders and followers, relevant leadership theory and research, skills and competencies that support leadership effectiveness, a more fully developed code of personal and organizational ethics, and an enhanced sense of social responsibility and citizenship.
