Emerging Leaders at Loyola University New Orleans

The Emerging Leaders Program (“ELP”) centers itself on the belief that all people have leadership potential. Participating students will engage in workshops allowing them to explore their values, strengths, and passions in order to fully realize and understand their own leadership philosophies. ELP is ideal for first and second year students interested in exploring leadership at greater depth. Not only will students learn more about themselves, but they will also engage with others to practice leadership skills and plan for their future.

Students who complete all three core sessions and any three elective sessions of their choosing will be eligible to receive a leadership certificate recognizing their developed expertise. Successful participants in the 2016 cohort will also be eligible to participate in special invite-only ELP alumni special events throughout the remainder of their college career & beyond at Loyola. 

Sign up here!

Applications DUE Sept. 7th, 10AM. Placements will be made on a first come, first serve basis! Capacity is limited.
