Grads: Calling for Husky Leadership Certificate 2018 Mentors

The Husky Leadership Initiative is currently seeking mentors for the 2018 Husky Leadership Certificate Program. Please read below for more information. We’d love to have you join us!

“I enjoyed the connection with a student who I would not meet in any other setting and getting to know what his interests are, how he views his Husky Experience. It helped me to think about my role as a mentor, a supervisor, and a member of the UW community.” –Former HLC Mentor

Are you interested in engaging with students and supporting them as they reflect on their own leadership development? Consider becoming a Husky Leadership Certificate Mentor! The Husky Leadership Initiative is currently seeking at least 150 UW faculty, staff, and community members to serve as mentors for the 2017-2018 Husky Leadership Certificate (HLC) cohort. The goal of the Husky Leadership Certificate is to engage students in a process of critical reflection on their leadership development and accomplishments.

As a mentor, you will be matched with a current UW student (junior or senior) and will support them as they create an online leadership portfolio from January 2018 through May 2018. Through the creation of the e-portfolio, students will articulate and demonstrate their leadership learning and development while reflecting upon their various curricular and co-curricular experiences. Feedback from former Husky Leadership Certificate students highlight the great value and positive impact of the mentoring relationship.

Have you been a HLC Mentor in the past? You will notice that our application looks a bit different this year, as we’ve adopted a new mentoring software that we think will benefit all parties involved in the program.

For more information about the Husky Leadership Certificate program, please visit our website. To serve as a mentor, please submit the HLC mentor interest form by November 20.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at We will follow up in late November/early December about our new mentor orientation and about our mentor/mentee matching process.

Thank you very much for considering this opportunity and for your ongoing support of UW student leadership development.
