TRHLP Scholars take honors courses that meet general education requirements in a learning community. Students who successfully complete all program course requirements will receive a leadership studies minor and may graduate with honors distinction.
In addition, all TRHLP Scholars must meet a number of requirements each semester to demonstrate satisfactory progress. They must follow general academic policies, maintain honors status and follow a particular course of study to be part of the TRHLP.
The TRHLP is student-driven. Interested students can test their leadership skills in several ways. Each year two students are selected to serve as Student Assistant Directors (these are paid positions). The Student Assistant Directors play a key role in shaping the future direction of the TRHLP while serving as a liaison between the students, Theodore Roosevelt Executive Council (TREC), and the TRHLP staff. Interested students can also hone their leadership skills by serving as a class representative on TREC. Other ways to serve the program and fellow TR Scholars include service on a TREC Committee (Service, Housing, Social) or appointment to the Honors Curriculum
and the Long Term Planning Committees. Potential employers and graduate schools are always looking for individuals with demonstrated leadership abilities.
