Emerging Leaders

Emerging Leaders (EL) is a transformative, Campus Life program geared towards first-year students at Washington University in St. Louis.

Emerging Leaders consists of an overnight retreat and 4 interactive community sessions. The Emerging Leaders program provides first-year students opportunities to coalition within an environment centered on socially responsible leadership, inclusion, values-based interpersonal development and fun!

Campus Life collaborates with various partners, guest speakers, and upper-class student mentors to construct curriculum that challenges students on their assumptions about leadership and encouraging an understanding of leadership that is both transformative and purposeful.

The Emerging Leaders program is a great opportunity for first-year students to evaluate their current leadership skills and values, develop and grow in areas they hope to strengthen, and community build with peer mentors that are experienced students leaders on campus!

Application Timeline

Applications to participate in the Emerging Leaders program will become available in October.
