Emerging Leaders Institute

The Office of Student Involvement and colleagues from across campus are thrilled to introduce the sixth annual Emerging Leaders Institute for aspiring freshman and sophomore leaders at Villanova University. The Emerging Leaders Institute is a two-day on-campus program, offered each Spring Semester, designed to enhance the leadership skills of our undergraduate students. We are going to cover topics such as interviewing, public speaking, and building self-confidence. Students will work closely with other emerging leaders through in-depth simulations. By identifying their unique strengths and articulating their personal/professional vision, students will be able to identify several leadership paths at Villanova. This opportunity is limited to only 40 students; first-come, first-serve!

Participants who attend both sessions will receive a signed certificate of completion.

This program will take place during Spring Semester. Registration will open in January and will include a catered dinner for both evenings and all program materials.

Please e-mail DeVon Jackson at with any questions.
