Emerging Leaders Program (ELP)

Emerging Leaders Program (ELP)

Students are invited to participate in a leadership certificate program during the fall semester. ELP provides experiential opportunities to enhance leadership skills, raise social awareness, and stimulate intellectual growth. The program introduces students to the concept of social justice, and leadership styles through a process of self-discovery.

Once the ELP certificate is completed, students are encouraged to apply for campus leadership position such as Student Government, Resident Assistant, Service Fellows; and develop on-going mentor relationships with upperclassmen, university staff, faculty, and senior administrators.
