Leadership and Professional Development (LPD) Program

The LPD Program will help you to move from classroom to career and is open to all Huron students.

You will take the skills and knowledge that you have acquired in your courses and put them into practice through a series of workshops, speaking events, and programming that will prepare you for a professional career upon graduation.
All workshops offered as part of the LPD certificate are open to all Huron students, you do not need to be officially signed up in the program to participate. If you are interested in taking part in the LPD Program or would like more information, please contact the Coordinator, Careers and Internships for more information.
  • How do I earn the certificate?


  • Although the LPD Program is being updated, Huron students in their 4th year who are pursuing their Certificate will be able to fulfill remaining workshop requirements. These students are encouraged to speak with the Coordinator, Careers & Internships to develop a plan for this option. 

    The Coordinator, Careers & Internships will determine eligibility for receipt of the LPD Certificate.  

    The LPD certificate will be awarded by and on the recommendation of the Executive Board of the HUC Corporation. The LPD certificate will only be awarded in the year that the student is completing his/her program.
