"Developing Leaders Today, for the World of Tomorrow"

Presidential Emerging Leaders Program (PELP) is designed for students who want to broaden their existing leadership skills and to develop their leadership potential. The multiphase program offers a multitude of hands-on experiences in order to facilitate the learning process. Students are challenged to utilize their existing talents and to cultivate those that are as yet untapped. Some of the topics included in the program are social change leadership model and styles, facilitation, ethical decision making, communication, vision, building consensus, collaboration, change, appreciating differences, conflict resolution and group dynamics.

The application process for the new PELP class is currently underway.  Completed applications are due by September 18, 2015.  The application form is available here.

Students that are selected for the new PELP cohort will begin classes on Monday, October 12.  All classes will be on Mondays at 4:00 to 5:30 pm in the Fall semester in the Overman Student Center.
