Emerging Leaders Program

What is the Emerging Leaders Program (ELP)?

ELP is a leadership development program that provides a space for students who are a newer to the leadership process at Loyola University Chicago to have in depth conversations about the foundations of leadership, justice, and campus involvement. ELP uses a cohort-based model to develop community among participants who meet seven times throughout the fall semester. By participating in the program students will have the opportunity to engage in the leadership process through experiential learning activities and group discussions.
