Weekly Class is strategically planned to be a combination of self-assessments, leadership development topics that can be directly applied to impact your life, and executive engagements/panel discussions with alumni.
Emerging Leaders is a one-year accelerated development program with the goal of encouraging current Ohio University sophomores/incoming juniors to achieve their potential as a leader. We strive to strengthen our members' intrapersonal skills and professional skill sets while mentoring them to realize their maximum leadership potential.
The EL Experience
A one-day networking trip is typically planned for the fall semester and a three-day trip (typically out of state) in the spring.
Your peer mentor group will become a place where you learn from each other and become a place where you will grow the skills necessary for interviewing and internships. These groups are invaluable!
- Leadership Speaker Series
- Ethics Case Competitions
- Executive Engagements
One of the most important pieces of EL is the time we give back to this amazing community and build awareness around so many needs in our town.
Most importantly, this organization will become your family. The relationships formed are meaningful and in most cases, last a lifetime. We spend time developing our leadership skills, but we have so much fun along the way.

The application process takes place during the spring semester and consists of two components. The first part consists of a written application with free response questions, a resume, and one letter of recommendation that evaluates your leadership potential.
If your application is selected, finalists will move on to the second component, comprised of individual and group interviews. Those invited into our program will join Emerging Leaders during the fall semester of the following academic year.
