The Emerging Leaders Program is a year-long selective and competitive first-year leadership program which focuses on leadership from a interpersonal and co-curricular point of view, as it pertains to women in particular. This program assists first-year students in developing key leadership skills through weekly workshops and seminars that place them in from of successful women from a broad variety of fields and experiences. ELP strives to provide key resources to incoming Barnard students. Barnard is a community of strong leadership and through this program we hope to provide incoming students the necessary tools to become effective leaders.
Do you want to be at the forefront of leadership on Barnard's campus? Are you interested in learning about leadership concepts, acquiring new skills, and participating in leadership-themed excursions around New York City? If so, the Emerging Leaders Program is for you!
This program is designed to introduce incoming first-years to both practical and theoretical elements of leadership--from how to plan an event on campus to exploring various leadership styles. Participants in the program will come from a variety of backgrounds and bring with them a range of leadership experiences. But no previous leadership experience is necessary- everyone has leadership potential and we encourage all prospective leaders to apply.
After an academic year, the Emerging Leaders Program came to a close on Friday April 20th, 2012. Forty women completed the program and presented their Spring projects to fellow students and administrators, including Dean Avis Hinkson. The now graduates of the program would like to thank the President office, the Deans office, Well Woman, Career Development, SGA, and of course, Student Life for their continued support.
