UAA Emerging Leaders Program (ELP) is a co-curriculum program aimed at developing and enhancing leadership skills and competencies of all students across campus through self-assessment, learning, and practice opportunities.  ELP will help students be accomplished in the classroom, competitive in the work force, and civic-minded in their communities.

This four-semester program has three levels of learning that build upon each other. Throughout all levels, students participate in retreats, workshops, community engagement opportunities, speaker series, and mentor opportunities (Program Components). Also, students become involve in campus life in a variety of ways.  Level III participants help to coordinate the UAA Leadership Conference that occurs in March each year and a Leading-ship (leadership internship).  Upon successful completion of all levels (Program Requirements), students receive a Leadership Certificate and a permanent notation in their academic transcript.

NOTE:  All retreats and cohort workshops are scheduled on Fridays.
