Emerging Leaders

The Emerging Leaders program is for first-year students and is focused on teaching students the fundamental skills of good leadership practice.

Through weekly leadership workshops, community service, and a group research project, the Emerging Leaders will explore the multi-faceted aspects of good leadership and develop their own skills and understanding of how they can best embody the skills of effective leadership.

Interested first-year students should apply during the fall semester for participation in the program during the following spring semester. Students accepted into the program will also be awarded the Gladys Brooks Foundation Endowed Scholarship.
