Emerging Eagles Mentor
The Florida Gulf Coast University Emerging Eagles Program is an introductory leadership program geared towards first-year students. The program utilizes mentors to facilitate weekly lessons and to mentor their small group of participants.
Through interactive workshops, small group discussions, and practical application, the program allows students to connect with their peers and develop skills in a safe and challenging environment. As an Emgering Eagles participant, students will learn:
- How to understand their dominant leadership style through leadership personality tests
- How to utilize their individual styles to the best of their ability and the put those strengths into action
- Be challenged to actively reflect and share their thoughts and experience in large and small group settings.
- Engage in activities which will stretch their knowledge and require collaboration with diverse individuals
- Develop the tools necessary to become an active, engaged leader on-campus and in the community
