Emerging Leaders

Welcome to the Emerging Leaders Program. As you transition into your role as a college scholar, we look forward to helping you explore different aspects of leadership as you create your foundation at Nebraska.

The Emerging Leaders Program supports recipients of the Nebraska Emerging Leaders Scholarship. Designed to create experiences that allow for personal leadership development and reflection, the program is here to guide your continued success during your first-year. Through direct connections with inspiring campus leaders and individualized academic success coaching from our dedicated staff in the office of First-Year Experience and Transition Programs, we are thrilled to help you build your own inclusive network.

To enhance your experience, you will have the opportunity to engage in fun, community building social events meant to challenge you to lead, learn and inspire.

We are excited to see you begin your journey as a Husker. Go Big Red!
