Beyond The Classroom

The University Honors and Leadership (UHL) program has a variety of offerings that provide our participants with educational experiences beyond the standard classroom environment. From conducting cutting-edge research with CU Denver faculty members to study abroad experiences to internships, the UHL program provides a variety of opportunities that complement your academic program.

In addition, our memberships in organizations including the National Collegiate Honors Council and the Colorado Leadership Alliance provide our students with opportunities to participate in state and national conferences with fellow honors and leadership students from other universities.
