Emerging Leaders

The Emerging Leader program for fall 2020 will not take place due to COVID-19.  We hope to be able to offer the program for spring 2021.  We look forward to hosting the EL program again.

A Typical Retreat Schedule:

You will begin your Winthrop leadership journey starting with our retreat.  You will participate in team-building activities. You will learn about Winthrop's rich history, participate in leadership-focused activities, and have discussion around the movie The Emperor's Club.
