The QCC Emerging Leaders Program is a non-credited Leadership Certificate Program that offers students the opportunity to gain basic leadership knowledge, develop leadership skills and explore on- campus and community involvement opportunities.
QCC Emerging Leaders Program participants will use the New York Times in Leadership program to connect leadership concepts to real world examples. Students will be given complimentary access to leadership themed New York Times articles along with discussion guides and opportunities to share comments via social media. These daily articles feature topics and concepts ranging from communication, decision making, diversity, global leadership, values and ethics amongst many other important topics. The articles, case studies, video conferences and discussion groups will broaden your understanding of leadership concepts, an important step towards your professional development.
Students who accept the challenge of participating in the Emerging Leaders Program at Queensborough will walk away with a stronger sense of leadership identity, valuable resume building experience and a network of peers who have similar goals. In addition, students who are active on campus can prepare for their future careers by creating connections to faculty and staff that can lead to possible recommendations, and often times they are the first students to hear about scholarship and internship opportunities. As John Fitzgerald Kennedy once said, “Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other." In an increasing competitive job market, leadership training can provide QCC graduates with an advantage over other graduates. This program will provide you the resources and the knowledge to become a leader on campus and in your future career.
