New Students: Earn Your First Year Leadership Certificate

Jun 7, 2017 by Molly Gagnon

Welcome new students, we're thrilled to have you on campus!

Emerging Leaders is the largest and fastest growing leadership certificate program at WSU, with over 200 students--and we want you to take advantage of this opportunity.

Designed to take highly motivated first year students, participants will develop their skills to be future leaders at and beyond the University.

The program kicks off with a leadership weekend allowing students to ask questions and create meaningful connections. Throughout the weekend students will explore leadership content and activities in smaller groups.

Following the leadership weekend, students have the remaining semester to select from a variety of workshops and events that allow students to develop and reflect on individual strengths and weaknesses. Advisors will help students discover leadership opportunities on campus to gain hands-on experiences that stand out among the rest.

Students will track involvement to develop a co-curricular transcript that will help them prepare for future internships and jobs. The entire program will utilize experiential education and learning-by-doing, and is designed to help students step out of their comfort zones while still having fun in the process.
