Selected Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors in the school of HPLS with Cumulative GPAs of 3.50 or above are invited to participate in the Leadership Forum comprised of separate 90 minute workshops for Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors during the fall and spring semesters.  Each cohort (Sophomore, Junior, Senior) is assigned to a member of the Leadership Forum Team for the duration of the Forum through graduation. Sessions are voluntary. Invited students must maintain a GPA at or above a 3.50 to continue. They must commit to attending all sessions each term and sign a leadership vision behavior contract. Students must also be in good standing with the Dean of Students throughout their time as a Leadership Forum member.

Freshman Tracking

Students in HPLS who attain a 3.5 or above cumulative GPA after their first semester will be nominated and be expected to apply for induction in the Phi Eta Sigma Honor Society at the beginning of their second semester. This will be monitored by the student’s academic advisor. Sophomores being considered for selection will be expected to apply for membership as Phi Eta Sigma to be invited to the HPLS Leadership Forum.

Leadership Abilities (modified from Kluka and Goslin)

Vision

To build people in capacity and capability of body, mind, and spirit to lead in sport, science, and recreation.

Mission

To provide strategically designed opportunities for students with demonstrated academic excellence to learn, reflect, and serve as leaders in glocal communities.

Goals

Increase self-awareness. Effective leaders are aware of their attributes, and they choose to apply their gifts for the common good. Understanding the gift of leadership is an essential step in cultivating self-awareness of body, mind and spirit leading to a values system based on just action in thought, word and deed.

Deepen knowledge and appreciation of others as essential members of the diverse global human family. As personal gifts are identified, the unique gifts in others will be made manifest. As we appreciate others for the diverse perspectives they offer through their gifts, leaders understand that inclusion of a diversity of human gifts achieves the best solutions.

Form and maximize a collective effect. Although leaders as individuals cannot do all things well, leadership teams can. Understanding each team members' capacity is crucial to getting the most out of a team and in a way that honors the capability each person has to offer the collective. Understanding each team members' unique gifts will give new insights into how the team can perform to its full potential in body, mind, and spirit as agents of positive social change.

Help others to affirm, develop, and apply their talents. As a leader who understands talents and how to apply them productively, others can be lead to fulfillment by developing and applying their talents in pursuit of self-sustaining solutions to societal problems.
