Leadership involves action and the direct application of knowledge and skills to improve our communities. All students enrolled in the ELP must actively participate in one or more involvement opportunities (e.g., registered student organization, intercollegiate athletics, theater production, Student Government, community organization, etc.)
Leadership is an interdisciplinary focus and has been influenced by a range of academic disciplines. In an effort to strengthen students' understanding of leadership, all students must satisfactorily complete (C or better) one three-credit academic course. Please reflect on one three-credit course of your choosing that you feel enhanced your leadership.
All ELP participants must complete six units of elective programs that are intended to further enhance leadership development. You may request approval for up to six elective units for participation in University programs or leadership training (e.g. Resident Assistant, Peer Mentor, Student Leader, etc.) by completing this form.
Leadership involves service to others. As a result, all students enrolled in the ELP must engage at least in 40 hours of service. You may request approval for service projects in which you are currently involved or service that you are completing as part of another organization or academic course.
In completing the Emerging Leader Program, please reflect on your journey by answering the following questions.
