Tier 1, or The Emerging Leader level of BHLP is open to all UD students. Participants attend a
variety of events (interactive workshops, conferences, guest speakers, cultural events, field trips)
focusing on personal leadership development and application of the 5 Practices of Exemplary Leadership
that are the core of the Leadership Challenge Model.
All workshops are grouped under one or more of the 5 Practices:
- Model the Way - Clarify personal values. Set the example by aligning actions with values
- Inspire a Shared Vision – Envision the future by imagining exciting and ennobling possibilities and enlist
others in a common vision by appealing to shared aspirations.
- Challenge the Process - Search for opportunities by seeking innovative ways to change and improve.
Experiment and take risks by generating small wins and learning from mistakes.
- Enable Others to Act - Foster collaboration by promoting cooperative goals and building trust.
Strengthen others by sharing power and responsibility.
- Encourage the Heart - Recognize contributions by showing appreciation for individual excellence.
Celebrate values and victories by creating a spirit of community.
Tier 1 participants must attend at least 10 events over the course of the academic year, making
sure that those programs attended cover all 5 of the Exemplary Practices. There are four
required components for all Tier 1 students:
- Why Leadership?
- The Leadership Challenge
- Leading by Showing Your True Colors
- Community Service requirement
In order to earn the Emerging Leader Certificate of Excellence, students must create and
present a poster that is a representation of your personal Tier 1 journey of self discovery. In
creating your poster, you should draw from the reflections you have written for each of the 10
or more BHLP workshops/programs you have attended. We are looking for key ideas, evidence
of personal growth and increased self-awareness, and illustrations or explanations of what you
have learned about leadership. Posters are presented in late April. Awards are presented to
the top poster presentations. Click here
