Emerging Leaders

Founded in 2011, the SGA Emerging Leaders program is geared towards developing future campus and community leaders. As an interactive learning experience, Emerging Leaders acts as an internship program with the Student Government Association dedicated to helping the individual better understand the nature of both SGA and the University. Many participants of the internship graduate to become SGA senators, justices, executive branch members, and leaders of our campus and community. Through a comprehensive curriculum, interns are offered the opportunity to participate in town halls, network with national, state, and local leaders, improve and make the changes they want to see on campus, and develop the skills necessary to excel within a professional setting.

Benefits of the Emerging Leaders program:

  • Develop leadership skills, communication skills and professionalism
  • Network with university administration and personnel
  • Network with former SGA Presidents and other student leaders, university administrators, city officials, and various corporate executives
  • Become engaged and active within the school community and contribute valuable input regarding university policy
  • Obtain valuable and marketable skills and experiences

If accepted into the program, the intern must meet the following time commitments:

  • Attend bi-weekly general Emerging Leaders meetings
  • Attend bi-weekly SGA Senate Meetings
  • Other commitments will be contingent upon SGA events, community service projects, and other opportunities
