Emerging Leaders

About Us


The fall 2020 Emerging Leaders porgam will not be offered until the spring semmester due to COVID-19.  Applications will be available in September 2020.  Please contact the Office of Student Activities for questions about the program.

The Emerging Leaders program is designed to educate and empower 18-20 first year students for positional leadership roles at Winthrop University. The program is designed to offer incoming freshmen the opportunity to explore their leadership potential and abilities through education of leadership theories and practices, as well as personal leadership exploration.

For a fall program, students are highly encouraged to live on the same  co-ed floor of a residence hall (however, are not required), share academic courses, and go on a leadership retreat just prior to the start of Welcome Week. In the fall semester, participants will engage in a leadership class together on Mondays from 2 p.m.-3:15 p.m., as well as share an ACAD 101 section on Tuesdays from 5:00-6:15pm 

This program is highly selective and an opportunity for Winthrop's new students to enter into a world of leadership.  Those interested in applying for the spring 2021 class, please check back for future updates or call our office.
