Faculty and staff who know of a current sophomore student(s) who would be a good fit for the program are encouraged to nominate students by Friday, Oct. 4. E-Lead program staff will then reach out to students in early October, indicating that they were recommended for E-Lead and encouraging them to apply for the program by the Oct. 21 deadline.
E-Lead is a three-year, curricular innovation leadership development program for undergraduate students across all disciplines at Marquette. Students apply and are accepted to the program in their sophomore year. Students will earn academic credits as they progress through each year of the curriculum, which focuses on three core principles of leading innovation:
- Leading Oneself: Innovation leaders are self-aware, committed to their core values and motivated to develop the mindset, skills and behaviors required to effectively lead with others.
- Leading With Others: Innovation leaders inspire, empower, listen to and collaborate with others to solve problems and create value.
- Leading Innovation: Innovation leaders create value because they have a growth mindset, bring talented and diverse perspectives together, and relentlessly pursue new and better ways of solving problems.
