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:

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:

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.
