The Emerging Leaders Series (ELS) is an 8-week leadership program specifically designed for freshmen, sophomores and new transfer students at EMU. Each week, participants will focus on a different aspect of leadership through exercises, discussions, presenters and observing current events. Weekly topics include, but are not limited to: values clarification, connecting service to leadership, personality assessment, team building and communication, and building and working on interpersonal relationships. ELS students will expand their network of resources to support their personal and academic achievement at EMU.
"Be the change you want to see in the world."
No prior leadership experience is necessary to participate; however, ELS has limited space so a brief application is required. Participants who successfully complete the 8-week program will be awarded a certificate of completion and Learning Beyond the Classroom (LBC) credit for the Community Service, Citizenship and Leadership requirement. Students must attend all meetings in order to receive Learning Beyond the Classroom credit and receive their certificate of completion for the Emerging Leaders Series. If students miss a session, they will have to make it up with the next class of participants.
