Emerging Leaders Experience

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:

  • Gain insight into group processes and the diverse ways individuals contribute to a group.
  • Learn how to set goals.
  • Work with a group of committed leaders to
  • Gain skills that will help improve their leadership capacity, effective communication, individual conflict technique
  • Make new friends that share their interest in leadership.
  • Earn "The Emerging Leader 1 Certificate and Recognition Pin" and become part of one of NSU's most prestigious groups.

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!
