The NSU Emerging Leaders Experience (ELE) is a ten week program designed to prepare students to be effective leaders.  We encourage students to participate that are interested in getting involved in the NSU community, want to learn more about themselves, and gain valuable skills to grow their leadership repertoire!  ELE meets once a week – student participants can choose the day that works for them, but must consistently attend that day of the program through the entire 10 weeks. Throughout your ten week experience, students will:
