Pathfinder: Texas State Emerging Leaders Program

Applications are due September 25th, 2017 by midnight!

Leadership Program for Freshmen and Sophomores!

Pathfinder

The Pathfinder: Texas State Emerging Leaders Program is designed to help first and second year students explore leadership at Texas State University and beyond. We meet once a week on Mondays for two hours in a formal setting during which participants will meet with their team leaders and small groups, as well as guest speakers and Leadership Institute staff.

The program provides a community on campus for students who are interested in being leaders on campus, wish to learn leadership theory and would like to be paired with an upperclassmen mentor. The mentorship component of Pathfinder will pair six to ten participants with a student leader that is active on campus and has successfully completed a Leadership Institute program. Participants will exit the program with a better understanding of their leadership skills and a commitment to excellence.

What is Pathfinder: Texas State Emerging Leaders Program?

The program fuses leadership development with an orientation into Texas State’s leadership opportunities via a mentorship program with on-campus leaders. At the end of the program, students will understand nuances of leadership theory and will begin to put them into practice on campus as they join some of Texas State University’s many student groups.
