The SORC, in partnership with other units from the Division of Student Affairs, offers a series of Leadership Development opportunities for students interested in evolving and maturing as leaders at ETSU.
We offer programs for emerging (new) leaders, current leaders,and advanced leaders! Each level of programming is designed to be beneficial to your level of leadership experience. If you are a freshman or have not held a leadership position, check out the Emerging Leaders tab to find opportunities to shape yourself into the leader you aspire to be! If you are a current student leader and want to continue developing your leadership skills, be sure to check out our leadership conference opportunities under the Current Leaders tab. We are presently working to bring programs for advanced leaders, check the Advanced Leaders tab for updates!
