Leadership Certificate Program

Discover the skills that can help to shape your life and boost your career. Learn how you can make a positive, lasting change as a leader at UBuffalo and beyond.

About the Certificate

The new Leadership Certificate Program continues the foundations of the old TORCH Leadership Certificate Program in a more intentional and holistic way. It is designed to connect students with leadership opportunities across campus and beyond, leveraging popular existing programs and including experiences like internships or jobs as ways to continue leadership development.  

Through this program, students can expect to learn important leadership skills and strategies, such as effective communication, working with others, and leading in a global society. Learning and understanding these skills and strategies will empower you to create positive change within your communities and help you develop those skills that are so highly sought-after by employers.

Leadership lies within all of us - you just need to know how to use it! Join us as you embark on your leadership journey, no matter what stage of leadership you are in.
