Emerging Eagles

 Emerging Eagles Spring 2016 Application


Overview & Purpose       
Emerging Eagles is leadership development program designed for first year students and new leaders to promote the discovery of individual leadership styles.   The program seeks to foster leadership potential and provide students the necessary tools to become effective leaders in the Florida Gulf Coast University campus, community, and beyond.


Students participate in large group workshops and are supported through small groups led by Emerging Eagles Mentors.  Students are required to complete one service project (eligible for the Service Learning graduation requirement) with their small group and a personal reflection of their experience.


Who Should Register
Emerging Eagles is designed to introduce students to leadership opportunities and prepare them with the necessary skills to contribute positively to the FGCU community.  Because everyone has leadership potential, no previous leadership experience is required.  Participants in our program come from a variety of backgrounds and have  diverse experiences.  All students interested in developing themselves as leaders and being on the forefront of leadership on the FGCU campus should register.


What will I gain from being a part of Emerging Eagles?

An understanding of personal leadership styles through personality and values assessments and reflection, while developing empathy for others.

  • The ability to confidently translate individual thoughts into cohesive conversations.
  • Develop fundamental team building skills to effectively accomplish common goals and achieve success.
  • Networking opportunities and peer connections that encourage the further development of leadership skills in all aspects of the collegiate experience.
  • Participate in activities that foster civic engagement and promote positive societal change.
