The Emerging Leaders course is interactive and hands-on!

The Emerging Leaders class helps students to discover and strengthen their leadership skills. Our focus is to develop successful student leaders who have the desire to become involved in campus and community life. The class focuses on a variety of leadership topics presented in a highly interactive format of seminars, guest speakers, professional development experiences, and small group projects. Benefits include the ability to demonstrate the importance of team building, identify your own preferred leadership style, demonstrate leadership under changing conditions, learn how to successfully work in groups, produce a quality resume and portfolio, write a research paper, articulate what it means to be an ethical leader, and participate in community service activities.

Emerging Leaders - LEAD 1300, 3 hours general elective credit (CRN# 40458), Fridays, 1-3 p.m. in the Anne Everett Lecture Hall of the Nursing Building. Mandatory retreat at Discovery Challenge Course: TBD!!
