The Distinguished Leadership Endorsement represents the best students UW Tacoma has to offer to the community. Students will progress through two (2) leadership certificate programs, engage in meaningful community work, and present to a board of faculty and staff on how they have made a community impact.

Selected students will receive an endorsement letter from the entire Board, making a recommendation to employers as the best UW Tacoma has to offer.

Learn Engage and Develop (LEAD):    

This is the first of two leadership certificates designed to help you build yourself personally and professionally. Distinguish yourself by showing that you intentionally engage in your own leadership development through workshops mentor sessions, a team project and an e-portfolio.

Community Engaged Leaders (CEL): 

This is the second of the extra curricular leadership certificates.  C.E.L will give you the skills, knowledge, and experience to effectively and ethically engage in community work.  For more information please visit the CEL Webpage.
