Emerging Leaders Program

The Emerging Leader program is designed to build the leadership confidence and potential of participants using several methods. With campus community members, guest facilitators and peer interaction, the program strives to provide a dynamic and interactive experience for students. Participants engage in a variety of activities which both challenge and support their idea of leadership, goals, and personal responsibility for positive social change in the community.

The seven week program includes 90 minute interactive workshops. Presenters from on and off campus join the group to share new insights, develop new skills, and challenge current thoughts about leadership in society. Additionally, it is an excellent opportunity to meet new people from across campus. For students looking for the push to get involved or gain knowledge about leadership, Emerging Leaders is the answer. Several Emerging Leader graduates have gone on to become prominent leaders on campus such as club presidents, Student Trustee, and Black and Gold Orientation Leaders. Furthermore, Emerging Leaders provides a foundation in leadership theory and exploration that will benefit students throughout college and beyond.

Participants will attend a series of seven 90 minute workshops. Past workshops have included:  What is Leadership? Motivation, Character vs. Reputation, Goal Setting, Diversity, and more. At the end of the program participants will receive a certificate of achievement at the Annual Awards and Recognition Ceremony.
