Emerging Leaders

EL Seal Fall 2014

About Us

The Emerging Leaders program is designed to educate and empower 20-25 first year students for positional leadership roles at Winthrop University. The program is designed to offer incoming freshmen the opportunity to explore their leadership potential and abilities through education of leadership theories and practices, as well as personal leadership exploration.

This year's selected participants of the program will be part of a Living-Learning Community, Leadership Explorers. Students are highly encouraged to live on the same  co-ed floor of a residence hall (however, are not required), share academic courses, and go on a leadership retreat just prior to the start of Welcome Week. In the fall semester, participants will engage in a leadership class together on Mondays from 2 p.m.-3:15 p.m., as well as share an ACAD 101 section on Wednesdays from 2 p.m-3:15 p.m. 

This program is highly selective and an opportunity for Winthrop's new students to enter into a world of leadership.  Applications for the 2015 class are now closed. Please check back in January 2016 for the application for the class of 2016.
