The LeaderShape Institute is the only student leadership development program of its kind in the country. The LeaderShape Institute is a six-day, on-site, intensive leadership training program for students. It is the only opportunity of its kind in the nation to provide this type of training for students for this duration and on-site.
The goal of the Emerging Leaders Program is to provide an opportunity for participants to identify, develop and practice leadership skills in order to make positive social change. Emerging Leaders is rooted in the philosophy that “leadership is a process, not a position”, which means ALL students are capable of becoming leaders.
This dynamic 2-credit course only meets five times per semester and transfers to all three state universities as an elective. Additionally, students learn leadership skills during the Emerging Leaders Retreat, one of the five course meetings, where students actively practice the leadership model.
