The Office of Student Involvement and colleagues from across campus are thrilled to offer the ninth Annual Emerging Leaders Institute (ELI). Aspiring student leaders will experiment with leadership models and skills and deepen their understanding of their own leadership identity through exploring values, strengths, and character. This two-day workshop will challenge our students to be socially responsible leaders who demonstrate strong interpersonal skills, the ability to empower others, and an openness to creating change. Offered each semester, ELI is designed to develop and enhance the leadership styles and skills of our undergraduate students. We cover topics such as:
- Personality Types
- Leadership Dynamics
- Public Speaking and Mock Interviewing
- Building Self-Confidence
- Creating a Leadership Action Plan
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. Participants who attend both sessions will receive a signed certificate of completion as well as ELI T-shirt. Dinner is also provided both days.
