First-year students: Develop your leadership skills, build relationships and engage with the campus community

The Emerging Leaders Program (ELP) is a one-semester program specifically designed to provide first-year students the opportunity to develop their leadership skills, build relationships across campus and become engaged in the campus community. ELP develops leaders with the confidence, ability and passion to be active and engaged leaders in their communities, as well as the foundation of leadership skills essential for lifelong leadership engagement. 

Participants learn about leadership and student organizations and graduate empowered to make a positive impact on the campus community. ELP is open to all first-year students, both those on-campus and those attending CWRU remotely. The deadline to apply is Tuesday, Sept. 15.
