Hansen Leadership Program

The Hansen Leadership Program, named after Zenon C.R. Hansen and founded in 1994, has encouraged our Tigers to grow into leaders beyond the classroom. Students in the Hansen Leadership Program develop their leadership skills by mentoring younger students, facilitating leadership workshops, planning campus events, and serving the community.
