The Emerging Young Leaders is a program designed to enhance the scholarship, personal growth, and social engagement of Freshman & Sophomore FAU students. The program is a semester long initiative that will consist of a calendar of opportunities that will engage students in positive campus and community involvement, which is critical for effective leadership.
Participants will engage in activities such as resume and portfolio building, leadership trainings, workshops and Reading Circles, Diversity Training, and campus wide activities to promote social involvement and community building.
When followed by the Certified Student Leader program, these two programs work to show growth in leadership as a student by first completing the Emerging Young Leaders (EYL) program as a freshman or sophomore and then completing the Certified Student Leader (CSL) program as an upperclassmen or a graduate student. As a result of completing the CSL program you will receive a notation on your official transcript as a “Certified Student Leader” showing you, graduate/professional schools and prospective employers the value you put on leadership.
Completion of the Emergent Young Leaders program awards students with a certificate of completion, and automatically qualifies you as eligible for the Certified Student Leader program.
