To provide a leadership experience through curricular and co-curricular programs to develop young leaders. The program will provide each new leader with a mentor. Mentors will continue to develop their leadership skills through peer mentoring and advising.
VCU’s Emerging Leaders Program influences the lives of young student leaders within the university through a competitive mentoring program so that they may be enlightened, engaged, and supported as a leader both at the university level and beyond.
History and Purpose of Program

Second, the first year leadership training and personal development program, as well as ongoing scholarships and mentorships in the second year, provide a strong basis for retention of these students from freshman to sophomore year and further.
