The Emerging Leader Program (ELP) is open to all students with an emphasis on freshmen, sophomores, and first year transfer students who are interested in developing their leadership potential through:

  • Community service group projects
  • Leadership enhancement seminars
  • An annual weekend retreat

ELP is designed to offer students opportunities to explore their leadership potential and abilities through interactive learning and practical skill building.

ELP reflects the belief that many of the skills and attributes needed for personal and professional success are acquired outside of or complement knowledge gained within the traditional classroom setting.

ELP provides opportunities to explore a number of areas including public speaking, goal setting, organizational skills, and community involvement through experiential exercises as well as reflective analysis.

ELP participants often go on to become members and leaders of other campus organizations, thereby advancing through the Trojan Life Cycle.
