University Honors and Leadership Program


The University Honors and Leadership (UHL) program is the University of Colorado Denver’s university-wide undergraduate honors program, offering both a traditional academic honors curriculum and an honors program in leadership studies.

The UHL program offers exceptional, highly motivated students many of the benefits of a small liberal arts college along with the opportunities available at a major research university. Our small class sizes and the close relationships that can be formed with professors and fellow students provide a stimulating intellectual environment that nurtures excellence. The interdisciplinary UHL curriculum, taught by some of the University’s best faculty members, rewards intellectual curiosity, challenges you to expand your horizons, and promotes life-long learning. UHL also takes you beyond the classroom, through opportunities to engage in research projects side-by-side with CU Denver faculty, to study abroad with fellow UHL students, and to participate in leadership-development activities with like-minded students from other universities.​
