Emerging Leaders Course

The Emerging Leaders Program (ELP) is designed to empower students to reflect on and articulate their own personal leadership style.

The class is only available to first year students and allows them to unpack how they have been socialized to think about leadership, explore their values, articulate their personal leadership style, and apply their empowered leadership to our Santa Clara community and beyond.

The course is built on the philosophy that every person has the capacity to be a leader to create positive social change. During the quarter, we will unpack the socialization we have received around leadership and begin to unpack the ways in which the historical representation of leadership and subsequent development of leadership theory is rooted in systems of oppression. The course integrates discussion and reflective engagement experiences.

Eligibility to Participate

First year students, including transfer students.
