Student involvement and community outreach are both fundamentally important parts of the university and the UHL experience. The UHL Student Club is an excellent opportunity for UHL students to immerse themselves in outreach to the program, the campus, and to the Denver community as a whole. It is this sort of participation which builds memories, skills, and friendships that last a lifetime.
The club’s main goals are to give back to the local community, as well as to reach out beyond this community in order to support larger social causes and to bring UHL students together in fun and productive ways. The focus of the club’s outreach efforts is determined by the club members and voted on by all UHL students. Every student in the program has a voice that will be listened to and equally considered. All major decisions, including what social causes the club will support, are made by majority vote. This ensures that everyone has the power to help determine the path of the club.
All UHL students are eligible to join the club, as well as to run for officer positions. The positions are: president, vice-president, treasurer/fundraising chair, secretary, service chair, and social chair. There are also two representatives for each cohort. Elections take place during the fall semester each year. Terms last for one full academic year (fall and spring semesters). Anyone who is interested in holding office is welcome to nominate themselves. Students are also encouraged to nominate others who they believe would be successful as a club officer.
