The Tiger Leadership Institute is a program that intends to make long-term leadership education available to any undergraduate student at the University of Memphis.  Three levels of training are offered, with each level having a specific audience and purpose:  

Level I is offered to freshman students and concentrates on initial involvement steps and college success.

Level II is open to sophomore, junior, and senor students, and focuses on effective student leadership. It is also open to freshman students who have graduated from Level I. 

Level III is only open to Level II graduates, and it applies leadership concepts to a variety of roles after college.
