Get Involved!

Emerge at Auburn offers many different ways for students to continue their leadership journey through long-term phase programs and one-off initiatives. Through the three phases of Emerge at Auburn, students are able to engage in leadership cohorts focusing on foundational leadership, service leadership, and leadership after Auburn. Our initiatives allow for students to gain leadership skills at the times most convenient to them in their journey through retreats and workshops.

Start your leadership journey with a year-long program focused learning about:

  • personal values
  • personality and leadership styles
  • team building
  • communication
  • and more!

Learn the foundations of leadership through a one-semester version of our traditional Explore program focusing on building your leadership identity and skills for leading a team.

Gain a greater understanding of the connection between service and leadership with our one-semester Spark program. This program focuses on:

  • a commitment to understanding change
  • servant leadership
  • social consciousness, and
  • community engagement!

Transform your leadership experience to positional leadership on campus, in the community, and within your future career field through the third phase of Emerge. Alongside a campus or industry coach, students will focus on:

  • understanding how to apply their strengths
  • planning for continued growth
  • and reflecting on their learning!

Join us for lunch and a one-hour discussion on current leadership topics and practices! Each workshop is open to all Auburn students.

LeaderShape is an intensive, energizing, and unique 6 day leadership development building experience that focuses on building leadership skills and promoting self-discovery. This retreat is held every May.

Discover Retreat is a three-day retreat for students getting started in their leadership journey! This is a great way to learn foundational leadership skills and discover how to get involved as a student leader at Auburn University. This retreat is held at the start of each academic year.
