Leadership Development

Emerging Leaders Institute

The Emerging Leaders Institute (ELI) at the Tampa campus prepares first-year, first time in college students to take on leadership roles at USF. This interactive experience helps students: 

  • Enhance their understanding of leadership
  • Explore personal values and interests
  • Create a comfort and desire to seek out leadership opportunities
  • Meet other aspiring student leaders to make lasting friendships!

The ELI Mentors are experienced student leaders who provide support to first year students through education and mentoring. Mentors work throughout the year to help first year students apply what they have learned during the Institute.
