Emerging Leaders Institute

photo of emerging leaders The Emerging Leaders Institute (ELI) is an annual program that happens in the Fall Semester for emerging leaders. Typically, this institute is held off-campus at an overnight retreat center, but this year, the experience will be 100% virtual. The focus of the retreat is to harness individual strengths, connect to personal and organizational values, and to prepare emerging leaders for their current or future leadership roles in the sorority and fraternity community.
ELI has shifted to virtual series of modules and calls spread out during the month of October. We ask that everyone be an active participant by investing their time, energy, emotion, and knowledge in the curriculum and with each other.

The deadline to register is September 28th at 11:59pm CST.

All students who register will get access to a Canvas course with modules to complete prior to each week's call. Each week's content will focus on a different theme of leadership development practices and resources. Each week's modules will be unlocked and accessible to participants at the beginning of each week.

There will be 4 weeks of online Canvas modules with 4 virtual Zoom meetings on the Friday of each week of ELI. The dates of those Zoom meetings are listed below:
