Emmanuel College First-Year Focus Leadership Academy
The Emmanuel College Leadership Academy enhances leadership skills within Emmanuel College students. The program has two levels; one for first-year college students, and one for those in prominent leadership positions across campus during their senior year. Through a set of presentations and workshops, students will hear about topics related to their ability to tap into the potential within them to become one of the strongest leaders at Emmanuel College.
Both levels are year-long programs that include interactions with alumni, campus speakers, off-campus activities, and development in many different areas. Students in the program must dress in business casual attire on Academy days and show a strong commitment to the program.
Each level of the Emmanuel College Leadership Academy has a specific mission and learning outcomes.
