Leadership ELR for Your Courses

Elon offers a process through which faculty who teach courses related to leadership can apply to have the course satisfy Elon’s Leadership ELR. This designation is aimed at courses that engage students in leadership experiences and address leadership content. This designation aims to draw in students and help them gain appropriate recognition for their work. The designation yields several benefits including reduced course caps, highly motivated students, and more, described further in the application form itself.

Courses do not need to count toward the Leadership Studies Minor to apply for the Leadership ELR designation; any faculty whose course includes significant leadership-related content and activity can apply. To apply, please fill out the form to apply for your course to have the Leadership ELR designation (log in with your standard Elon information; form does NOT need to be completed all in one sitting). You may also find this decision tree, “Is my course Leadership-focused, or Academic Service-Learning?” helpful.

Submissions for Fall/Winter courses are typically due early in the Spring semester, usually mid-February. Submissions for Spring/Summer courses are typically due early in the Fall semester, usually mid-September. If you have questions, please contact the Faculty Fellow for Leadership (currently Raj Ghoshal, rghoshal@elon.edu).
