Click below to watch a brief video discussing the Leadership ELR!


The Leadership ELR requires approximately one semester to complete. Students will complete the Leadership Development Workbook and have intentional conversations with their advisor thus providing them with a heightened awareness of their responsibility as a leader. 

The Experiential Learning Requirement (ELR) is a graduation requirement that was initiated in the General Studies Program and became effective in the fall semester of 1994. The ELR expands upon the Elon Experiences by providing a structure to facilitate and encourage students to practice close observation of the world around them and reflect insightfully about those observations. Exposure to diversity helps students see the interrelationships between academic studies and other experiences.
