The Experience

The Housley Principled Leadership Program (HPLP) is a leadership dialogue and workshop designed to bring self-awareness to the development of student leaders. With sessions like You, Inc. covering individual brand power, themed discussions about the need for principled leaders and insight from business professionals, HPLP will challenge definitions of "service", inspire you to examine your thinking, and help you grow into a leader of consequence.

Each week provides engaging and inspirational content. Students attend classes structured to make them more reflective, purposeful and influential leaders. 

We believe in helping extraordinary young leaders reach their potential, the Housley Principled Leadership Program is one of the ways we do it.



Housley helped me grow in so many ways. It helped me take what I am learning as a student leader and apply it to my career and future. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience.

Anyone can follow the rules and plenty of people graduate college, but there are those few who choose to wake up each morning and be extra-ordinary. Those folks are who we want.
