Honors Leadership Board
The Honors Leadership Board (HLB) plays an important role within the University Honors Program. These dedicated students make vital decisions about the program and play a major role in scheduling honors program events. They make long-lasting friendships with people who share their interest in the honors program -- and in making the most out of their Quinnipiac education.
