The CHP also provides many opportunities for CHP students to gain and hone leadership experience. There is most likely a CHP leadership position for everyone, no matter a student’s past experience or personal interests! New CHP leaders benefit from personalized mentorship from more experienced student leaders and staff advisors; experienced CHP leaders take on roles of increasing responsibility, work independently, and recruit and nurture new leaders. CHP leaders also are leaders across campus in their school/majors, in ASUCI, on sports teams, on honors societies, and as part of many student clubs and organizations.
Participating in the CHP community and in leadership activities empowers students to set and achieve challenging goals, enhances academic studies, helps students learn and use valuable skills in the future (such as problem solving, professionalism, communication, teamwork, intercultural fluency, technology, etc.), and enhances students’ overall experience at UCI. Everyone in this community has something to give and something to learn by actively taking part in it.
