The Emerging Leaders Workshop

The Emerging Leaders Workshop is designed by the Office of Greek Life to seek out emerging leaders in our fraternity/sorority community and is geared towards second year members. The Emerging Leadership Workshop will use Kouzes and Posner theory of leadership as the basis for the curriculum. Each participant will complete the Leadership Practice Inventory as part of the workshop.

The workshop has three intended outcomes: participants will understand their leadership style; participants will understand how to utilize their leadership style within their chapter; participants will understand how to utilize their leadership style within the greater fraternity/sorority community.

Participation in this workshop is by nomination only.  Chapter presidents and advisors only may nominate participants.
