The Pathways: First Year Experience Program will be offering the Rising Leaders Certificate Program in the spring 2020 semester. This leadership program is specifically designed for first year students to develop as a leader in a way that is meaningful to them, get involved on campus, and become actively engaged in planning for their future. Rising Leaders will grow in three areas: personally, professionally, and with the community. We want students to explore leadership in the context of their own life, become more engaged in the community and naturally grow as a leader on their own terms. To learn more about the program and how students will earn the certificate, visit If you have any first year students you feel would like to participate or can benefit from this program, please email Stephanie Appenheimer the student’s name, Student ID #, and why you are recommending them. We will then reach out to the student encouraging them to apply! Feel free to contact the Rising Leaders Certificate Program Coordinators, Stephanie Appenheimer ( and Brianna Dempsey (, for more info, or stop in the Academic Support Center!
