2018-2019 EL Application

Interested in becoming a facilitator?

We are looking for dedicated junior and senior students who are interested in displaying and expanding on public speaking, leading large and small group discussions, organization, group collaboration, and more!  Sophomores are also eligible to apply, but must have completed Emerging Leaders or Centennial Leaders.  These students not only serve as session facilitators, but positive role models and mentors.  Facilitators will conduct interviews, select participants, and plan all of the Emerging Leaders sessions including the overnight retreat. We are always looking for a diverse team of facilitators so don't hesitate to apply or get more information on this semester long experience. 

Facilitator applications will open back up in 2019. See you then!
