The Horizon Leadership Program brings together North American minority students who desire to be a part of a community that pushes them toward excellence and empowers them to become tomorrow’s best leaders. Since its inception over 15 years ago, dozens of students have been a part of HU’s Horizon Program.

The Horizon Leadership program is an institutional value,” said Bailey. “It was created to empower and support young minority student leaders to become tomorrow's best leaders.”
