2021 Dates for Emerging Leaders Retreat:
December 3-5, 2021
The Emerging Leaders workshop retreat is a weekend of break-out sessions examining leadership principles, local leadership, civic engagement, and networking with other high school student leaders from across the state. We will also host a student leadership panel comprised of current University of Mississippi student government and service organization members.
The Emerging Leaders workshop retreat is for the newly elected Student Body or Student Council President and Junior Class President of any Mississippi high school.
What Students are Saying
“Before attending the Emerging Leaders program in December of my senior year, I did not view The University of Mississippi as an option. Through the programming, especially the current students panel, I began to see how much The University of Mississippi and especially the Lott Leadership Institute had to offer. My experience with Emerging Leaders encouraged me to connect with my Ole Miss admissions counselor, Shelby-Rae, who guided me through the application process. While my [Stamps] scholarship offer and acceptance to the Public Policy Leadership program were the primary reasons I decided to attend The University of Mississippi, I would have never applied had I not attended the Emerging Leaders program.”
