Emerging Leaders is a series of meetings designed to facilitate leadership development in students. This program is facilitated by the Student Experience office and the Archer Center for Student Leadership Development to provide students with an opportunity to develop a foundation of leadership skills and knowledge.
In the first year students are invited to apply for Emerging Leaders I (EL I), offered annually during the spring semester. This foundational program allows participants to explore their personal leadership styles in preparation for future leadership.
The Emerging Leaders II (ELII) series is offered annually during the fall semester. This praxis based program asks participants to learn by doing. Students plan and facilitate workshops and events for their class which encourage development around certain skills. Past events have included the development of content for class websites, the Sophomore Toast aimed at teaching networking skills; and the Sophomore Symposium a full day event. EL II focuses on developing a sense of purpose through the social change model of leadership with their class as the community.
Emerging Leaders III is currently under development and will develop multicultural sophistocation in leadership.
