Center for Leadership Interns

The Center for Leadership Interns are responsible for coordinating all programs and services offered in the Center for Leadership. Students commit to a year term transitioning in February and serving in the Spring semester and then the Fall semester. These programs and services are divided into distinct internship positions including: Isabella Cannon Leadership Fellows, Marketing & Communication, Organization Development, Community Programming, Campus Engagement and Inclusive Excellence. Each intern has individual responsibilities, but CFL Interns have common goals to work collaboratively and provide leadership development opportunities for all Elon students.

As a Center for Leadership Intern, students grow personally and professionally. We are looking for students to further develop their individualized leadership style by working with the CFL professional staff.
