Emerging Leaders Series

Emerging Leaders Series is a free, seven-week, non-credited survey class that teaches leadership understanding and skills. Most students are nominated to participate by their First-Year Symposium professors. All other undergraduates may also apply using the ELS Application form.
The success of the program is realized in the number of upperclassmen who also independently seek this leadership development opportunity. ROTC members are particularly encouraged to participate, availing themselves to the widest versions of leadership and further assisting them in their pursuit of commissioning.

Emerging Leaders Series Content

The content of the series includes conversation and engaging activities dealing with the topics of foundations, leadership theories and styles, diversity, identity, communications, integrity, values, vision and action. Cross-campus and off-campus presenters are among our finest experts in the fields of ethics, communications, and problem-solving, drawing from both our academic faculty, seminarians and student life leaders. Each conducts activities and interacts with Emerging Leaders to generate discussion and to serve both as role models of leadership and as networking channels for additional leadership opportunities.
