The LeaderShape® Institute

The first LeaderShape® on The University of Texas at Austin campus, was hosted by the Cockrell School of Engineering in 1997. Since then over 1500 UT students have participated in the interactive week-long leadership development program. Leadershape® is open to registered undergraduate, degree-seeking students in The University of Texas at Austin who are in good academic standing and who have at least one semester remaining before graduation. Through a competitive application process, sixty students are selected for each session. The Cockrell School's LeaderShape® Institute is coordinated by Engineering Student Life.
