Emerging Leaders Program
The Emerging Leaders Program (ELP) is an 11 week non-credit leadership series for first-year (freshmen and transfer) students that aims to build and develop students’ leadership skills, teambuilding abilities, leadership knowledge base, and self-awareness.
Applications open at the beginning of each semester.
Students commit 1.5 hours a week to this highly interactive program which uses mostly experiential learning to explore consciousness of self, ethics, problem solving strategies, teamwork, personal leadership and communication styles, and strengths. Several sessions are held each semester. ELP is a great start to getting involved on campus and is a great way to meet fellow future leaders at Mizzou.
Applications for the fall sessions are open throughout the summer and close shortly after the start of the fall semester. Spring session applications open shortly before the start of winter break and close shortly after students return for the spring semester.
ELP Peer Facilitators
Each year, past ELP participants have the opportunity to apply to be peer facilitators. Peer facilitators serve as mentors to current ELP participants, as well as plan outside social activities for participants, and assist with the facilitation of weekly sessions. Peer facilitators gain communication, facilitation, problem solving, time management, and mentoring skills.
Applications for peer facilitators are available during the spring semester.
