The QCC Emerging Leaders Program (QCCELP) is a co-curricular Leadership Program that offers students the opportunity to become engaged outside of the classroom. QCCELP provides students the opportunity to develop interpersonal and leadership skills, network with leaders at the University, in industry and explore on-campus and community engagement opportunities. Participants will explore topics and concepts including communication skills, decision making, values and ethics among many other important topics. This program will require students to complete a series of all-day training sessions held over the course of five Saturdays. The program will be offered twice per year (Fall / Spring) with a maximum cohort of twenty students.
Participants who complete the program will become familiar with and be able to navigate professional and social interactions that create educational and professional opportunities. 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.

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.
