At UK, we believe that leadership is for EVERYONE, including you! If you have the desire to get involved and make a difference, then you are already on your way to becoming a great leader. Leadership is working together to create positive change.
We are currently in review of our leadership program, the only opportunity to connect with us currently is the Emerging Leader Institute (information below). Stay tuned for more ways to get involved with us!
Offered every semester, ELI is a graded, three-credit hour leadership development course designed for first and second year students (students with 60 or less credit hours). This interactive and engaging class challenges students to examine different leadership theories and styles, to discover their own leadership style, and to gain skills that will lead to positive, effective change for their communities. Throughout the class, students will work with positive change agents- ranging from their peers to faculty and staff to even local community leaders. In addition, students will have the opportunity to work in mentor groups and create leadership change projects that will enhance their learning and make a difference to UK and the surrounding community.
“It’s not every day that you are able to truly look forward to going to a class with the confidence that you will in some way be enlightened.”
“I guess I am trying to say that ELI has given me some sort of drive to change the world I live in, along with the confidence to make that change.”
“Favorite experience at UK so far.”
We would love to hear from you!
