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.
Be a researcher. Our students have the opportunity to engage in cutting-edge research under the guidance of faculty mentors.
Be an active participant. We celebrate our community with a number of annual events.

The University Honors and Leadership community is more than an academic one and the cohort-based nature of the UHL program offers unique opportunities for interaction beyond the classroom. One core value of UHL is making a positive contribution to the wider community. This includes CU Denver and the Auraria Campus, our city, our state, and beyond.
Giving back is a key component of being part of UHL and students are required to complete a minimum of one community engagement project each semester. Our community service activities are student directed and community oriented.
