"Learn Together, Lead Together"

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 various leadership styles, facilitation, ethical decision making, communication, vision, building consensus, collaboration, change, appreciating differences, conflict resolution and group dynamics.

Each year will focus on a distinct area of leadership.

  • Year One - development of self through discovery of values, boundaries, and personal mission
  • Year Two - application of skills and leadership concepts to organization involvement 
  • Year Three - honing past experiences for use in application for advanced schooling or career
