Leadership Development Programs

Get inspired. Then inspire others. We work with campus leaders and leaders-to-be to develop and expand leadership skills and honor those who are making an impact on campus and beyond.

Emmanuel College Leadership Academy
The Emmanuel College Leadership Academy is a leadership development program geared toward students who demonstrate leadership potential, commitment to the future of Emmanuel College and a strong drive to achieve great things. Leadership Academy is based in the social change model of leadership, which is a purposeful, collaborative, values-based approach that results in positive change for participants and the larger campus community.

If you are interested in joining ECLA, please contact Kelli Connors, Assistant Director of Student Involvement and Leadership Development or complete our online interest form.

Omicron Delta Kappa
Omicron Delta Kappa is the first national college honor society to give recognition for leadership, and Emmanuel College is proud to recognize our top campus leaders. Membership in Omicron Delta Kappa is as much an obligation and responsibility to leadership as it is a mark of highest distinction and honor. Membership is open to undergraduate junior and senior students in the top 25% of their class as well as to faculty, staff and administration of Emmanuel College.

Juniors and Seniors who are eligible will be invited to apply online and will be inducted into the society in the spring semester.  For more information , please visit the national Omicron Delta Kappa organization website.

Omicron Delta Kappa recognizes leadership achievements in Five Phases of Campus Life:

  1. Scholarship
  2. Athletics
  3. Campus or Community Service, Social and Religious Activities and Campus Government
  4. Journalism, Speech and the Mass Media
  5. Creative and Performing Arts

Students interested in being considered for induction should contact Kelli Connors, Omicron Delta Kappa Advisor.
