The NSU Emerging Leaders Experience (ELE) is a semester-long experience 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 capacities! 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 semester.
ELE 1 is a 10-week series based on the text Leadership for a Better World - Social Change Model (Komives, Wagner, and Assoc. 2017). This series presents the concept that leadership is a process driven by a group of individuals to create positive change. Students will explore their strengths and weaknesses, group dynamics, managing conflict, inspiring action. Throughout your ten-week experience, students will:
Increase self-awareness regarding their unique strengths, leadership style, conflict style, and values while learning those of their peers.
ELE 1 is offered during both the fall and winter semesters. Students that wish to participate must complete an online application; participate in the ELE 1 Mandatory Weekly Meeting and ELE Service Day, typically held on Saturday!
