What is Emerging Leaders?
Emerging Leaders is a unique opportunity for WSU students to get on the fast-track to student leadership, campus, and community involvement. Students participating in the Emerging Leaders Program will receive an insider’s perspective on Student Involvement at WSU. Throughout the program, students will have an opportunity to develop their leadership abilities through workshops, activities and reflection in order to prepare them for future leadership experience at WSU and beyond.
Each participant will be paired up with an upperclassman mentor with the same major. These mentors are trained by Student Involvement to develop leadership potential on a peer level. They operate as a campus and community resource for their mentees as well as being an observable example of the qualities, character and actions of a student leader.
Emerging Leaders will have 30 spaces open for the 2014 Program. Candidates will be screened and selected through an application process.
Applications for Spring 2015 will be available in August 2014.
The highlighted dates are required sessions. The rest are optional sessions that participants will choose from in order to complete the program.
