Everyone can be a leader! Learn how you can be an active contributor in your community!
UAA Emerging Leaders Program (ELP) views leadership as a process, not a position, and therefore inclusive and accessible to all. Leadership development is valued-based, collaborative, and socially responsible. Citizenship, or focus on positive change through community engagement and service, is key to leadership development. For leaders to be successful, they must first understand themselves and align their values with their goals. Learning how to work with others, while recognizing strengths and challenges, leads to understanding the true meaning of leading with integrity and positively impacting others.
ELP has three levels of learning that build upon each other, which are completed in four semesters. Each level will have a maximum of 25-30 participants in one cohort with the intent that each group will move through the levels together so as to create partnership and support among the members of the cohort. Throughout all levels, students will participate in leadership retreats, topic-specific workshops, community engagement opportunities, speaker series, mentorship opportunities and national conferences. (See Program Components) Also, Level III participants will develop a UAA Leadership Conference that will occur in mid-spring each year.
Level 1 Leadership Essentials: Individual Values (Fall semester)
Level 2 Leadership Essentials: Group Values (Spring semester)
Level 3 Leadership Capstone: Societal/Community Values (second Fall and Spring semester)
