The Leadership Learning Community provides first-year students with a space to explore their potential and personality and to build upon their strengths to develop into a leader. In addition to taking core classes together, students will identify and work on their strengths, take leadership assessments, develop a passion to become lifelong learners, and build a community with future SHSU leaders.

If the Leadership Learning Community interests you, you should also consider starting personal exploration, engagement, and community building during the summer through Bearkat Camp.  In this four day, three night camp for incoming SHSU freshman, you’ll experience the spirit, pride, and traditions of SHSU.

"I would like incoming freshmen to know that the Learning Community helped me build a bond with others. I made many friends and learned a lot -- the fact that we all took classes together made it all worthwhile. It was truly an extraordinary experience. "
--Carrie, ’15, Psychology
