Emerging Ethnic Leaders Leadership Institute

The Mission of Emerging Ethnic Leaders (EEL) is to increase, retain, and support student of color leadership development that promotes social justice and sustainable change through: Mentorship, Leadership Development, Service, and Collaboration.

EEL's Values include: Leadership Development, Identity Development, Social Justice, Finding your Voice, and Cultural Awareness. 

Who is part of the program?

The leadership institute is open to first and second year students currently enrolled at the University of Cincinnati. Each class consists of about 50 students. The intent of the program is that you will get to know these students across campus well and you will be in small groups with a upper class peer mentor and faculty/staff advisory board member.

What is the commitment?

We try to make the biggest impact in the shortest amount of time, we can. We meet as a group once in the fall semester (November). During the spring semester, we have a retreat in January and follow up meetings focused on a service project following the retreat. There is an end of the year celebration in April. 

Register by October 30, 2016.
