Blue Hen Leadership Program


Service and community engagement experiences are inextricably linked with leadership development.

In promoting this belief, our Blue Hen Leadership Program offers community service experiences for students registered in the program. We also partner with a variety of offices, departments, and student organizations to sponsor service activities. Some of these events may be held on campus; many of them will be held at off-campus locations. In line with best practices and COVID-19 restrictions, many of our service opportunities may be virtual engagement.

Monthly Activities

BHLP regularly organizes monthly activities for program participants. Details on monthly activities are coming soon. For more information, contact Matthew Creasy, Assistant Director at We anticipate that many of these activities for the fall semester will be virtual engagement.

Alternative Breaks

BHLP Sponsors Alternative Break Programs every year. These programs focus on social issue-based service and development. The experiences consist of service initiatives throughout the semester leading up to the break during which the intensive program occurs, and an activism phase one students return to campus. This year, BHLP anticipates offering one alternative spring break program.  See below for more information.
