Emerging Leader Institute
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.
