Shepherd recognizes the amazing connection between a student’s success and their engagement to the institution. We believe strongly in providing engagement opportunities through service and leadership. We believe strong leadership is rooted in conscious and consistent service. In recognizing that connection, we created a program specifically for first-year students…Emerging Leaders in Service.
This immersive program allows first-year students to get acclimated to campus before classes begin. All first-year Shepherd students are invited to participate in this program, but if you are a residential student, you will move in a week before classes into YOUR specific residence hall.
During the program you will get the opportunity to participate in leadership training, team building, and participate in the annual Day of Service.
Discover your strengths, leadership potential, and ability to make a difference in the world.
Experience leadership in action by participating in Day of Service volunteering with a team of first year students at a non-profit agency in the community.
Build relationships with other incoming students, current student leaders, and staff mentors.
