Thanks to a generous gift by Delta Air Lines, The Speaker Series presented by Delta is a monthly opportunity for Auburn students to learn from successful leaders in their respective fields on topics related to the Emerge at Auburn program.
Auburn University has hosted a session of the Institute by Leadershape, a nationally recognized student leadership development program, each summer since May 2010. Sixty student leaders are selected to attend at no cost. Please check back in January for more details on how to apply!
Emerge at Auburn University is a dynamic leadership program aimed at helping Auburn students develop the skills to lead on campus, in the community, and in their future career field.
She’s often mistaken for a beauty pageant queen. And she’s often questioned for not having a crown or sash. Her role is unmatched amongst SEC universities, and her purpose stands firm after decades of change. At Auburn, it’s known that we cherish our traditions. And Miss Auburn is one of the most unique and time-honored traditions at our institution.
During her term as Miss Auburn, she embodies several roles. She is there to be a positive, welcoming face and to help host events. She serves alongside the SGA President and the executive team. She is an honorary member of the War Eagle Girls and Plainsmen. And she works directly with a Freshmen Leadership Program, whose mission seeks to turn her platform into action.
Each week 45 freshmen will meet with their director and assistant directors to work on leadership development and campus involvement. Each meeting is designed to help freshmen enhance their abilities, network with fellow leaders, and practice the skills they acquire. There are nine different programs that focus on different aspects of campus life. The program’s focuses are: Community Awareness, Community Service, Leadership, Health and Wellness, and Student Government.
The Office of Student Involvement partners with the American Red Cross the host blood drives throughout the year. There are 2 drives in the Fall Semester, 2 drives in the Spring Semester, and 2 drives in the summer. The Auburn students, faculty and staff who choose to donate are truly life savers.
