Questions about our Blue Hen Leadership Program can be answered by our Leadership Development staff, found in 157A Trabant University Center. Answers to the most common questions we receive can also be found under the BHLP section on Get Involved.
An RSVP is a necessary courtesy for our presenters, so they know how many students to prepare
for. In addition, if we are providing refreshments or a meal at a program, we must let catering know
how many students they are serving. We are charged based on this number, so your RSVP is your
commitment to attend.
If you must cancel your reservation, contact the Student Leadership Center at (302) 831-7622 to cancel.
No. Each tier is designed to be completed in a single, academic year.
To earn the Emerging Leader certificate (Tier 1), you need to attend 10 events that cover each of the 5 practices of exemplary leadership, plus participate in one community service activity. The 10 events include the three required workshops: Why Leadership?, The Leadership Challenge, and True Colors.
We award you the credit in whichever practice area you need.
No. Tier 1 is open to all students at the University of Delaware. While we encourage students to get
started as freshmen so they can complete all the Tiers, we have many seniors who earn the Emerging
Leader, Tier 1 certificate.
No. You only need to complete Tier 1 in order to enroll in Tier 2.
The Engaged Leader, Tier 2 focuses on project management. Students engage in an in-depth
study of The Leadership Challenge model of leadership and then design and implement a project
focused on positive change, using the models to lead their team.
BHLP Community Fellows, Tier 3, focuses on community engagement. Students are placed with a non-profit in whose mission they have some interest. The fall semester is spent learning about the non-profit and how it functions. During spring semester, students take the lead on a project for the non-profit.
Most of the cost of BHLP is covered by student fees you already pay. However, due to the size and scope of the program, it is necessary to charge a small fee to help defray the cost of supplies, travel and other incidentals that help BHLP be a nationally benchmarked program.
The fees are as follows:
Tier 1: $50 (undergraduate) / $100 (graduate)
Tier 2: $100 (undergraduate) / $150 (graduate)
Tier 3: $50 (undergraduate) / $150 (graduate)
There is no charge for Advanced Tier 1 or for Tier 4.
Students for whom this fee presents a financial strain should consult Susan Luchey. Fees may be waived or reduced if proper documentation of financial need can be provided.
Learning to lead effectively is a lifelong process. More importantly, holding a title is not a
guarantee of your ability to effectively develop a team or lead that team to successful completion of its
mission. BHLP will provide you with specific tools to enable your success, to teach you a framework
within which you can lead, and help you to develop a leadership portfolio that makes you more
attractive to potential employers.
