The Husky Leadership Initiative is currently seeking mentors for the 2022-23 Husky Leadership Certificate Program. Please read the email below for more information. We’d love to have you join us!

“I enjoyed the connection with a student who I would not meet in any other setting and getting to know what his interests are, how he views his Husky Experience. It helped me to think about my role as a mentor, a supervisor, and a member of the UW community.” –Former HLC Mentor

Are you interested in engaging with students and supporting them as they reflect on their own leadership development? Consider becoming a Husky Leadership Certificate Mentor! The Husky Leadership Initiative is currently seeking UW faculty, staff, and community members to serve as mentors for the 2022-2023 Husky Leadership Certificate (HLC) cohort. The goal of the Husky Leadership Certificate is to engage students in a process of critical reflection on their leadership development and engagement.

As a mentor, you will be matched with a current UW undergraduate senior and will support them as they create an online leadership portfolio from January 2023 through May 2023. Through the creation of the e-portfolio, students will articulate and demonstrate their leadership learning and development, while reflecting upon their various curricular and co-curricular experiences. Feedback from former Husky Leadership Certificate students highlight the great value and positive impact of the mentoring relationship.

“The mentorship component was a highlight of my HLC experience.  My mentor really helped me grow in a lot of areas in not only my leadership development but also in my professional development and how to best present my leadership experiences to potential employers.”  

 –Former HLC Mentee

To serve as a mentor, please complete the Mentor Interest Form by 11:59 PM on Monday, October 24.   If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at uwhlc@uw.edu. We will follow up in November about our new mentor orientation and in December about our mentor/mentee matching process.

Thank you very much for considering this opportunity and for your ongoing support of UW student leadership development.
