Emerging Leaders Community

The 2014-2015- Honors Complex Emerging Leaders Community

Approximately twenty-eight students will be chosen for the 2014-2015 Leadership Community, which is housed on the Fifth Floor-North of the Honors Complex.   Those participating in the Community move in to the Honors Complex about one week before the other students, and go through several days of leadership training before classes begin.  This is a special opportunity to make new friends in a unique learning community at the start of your college education. Faculty and staff involved have won awards for the leadership training done through this and a related Leadership Community in Ritchie Hall. Participants receive membership in America's #1 Residence Hall Programming Board-- and that is the one at UA!   In the past few years, applications have far exceeded the spaces available in this community, so applicants are encouraged to include as much detail as possible on your application.

Students chosen for this Leadership Community must be members of the Honors College in good standing. All first-year students, those in the Leadership Community will participate in a leadership class during the fall and spring semesters that will be held on Wednesdays, 3:20-5:00 p.m.   With the topic of developing leadership skills, students in this program are committed to a full year of Leadership Community/Major Events Committee Activities. Students must be able to arrive on campus one week early for Welcome Weekend/Residence Hall Orientation, 2014.
