Center for Leadership Welcomes new cohort of Leadership Fellows

The Class of 2024 cohort of Isabella Cannon Leadership Fellows have begun their leadership journey at Elon.

For 31 years the Center for Leadership has welcomed budding leaders into the Isabella Cannon Leadership Fellows. This year with more than 900 applicants, the Class of 2024 brings in 26 new fellows for the program who are ready to start their journey.

Leadership Fellows follow a path to identify their own leadership style and how to build on it to advocate for change in their communities. Through classes, programs and workshops, the Center for Leadership looks forward to supporting the 2024 fellows during their time at Elon University.

Class of 2024 fellows participate in a physically distanced retreat.

Leadership Fellows have access to unique course work, including the Winter Term course Disarming Injustice: Non-Violence and Civil Rights that focuses on the historical and continuing struggle different communities face in America. First-year fellows also get the opportunity to learn from Elon President Emeritus Leo M. Lambert and Center for Leadership Director Melanie Bullock Harris in their Elon 101 course.

The Leadership Fellows participate in a co-curricular leadership development program that includes a variety of workshops, forums, and experiential learning opportunities. First-year fellows complete Social Change Labs that help students investigate their leadership style and philosophy and better understand their responsibility to their communities. Monthly Forums give fellows access to campus and community leaders who are able to share their own journeys and insights into leadership.

Pursuing a variety of majors and passions, this year’s fellows have academic interests in political science, international business, psychology and others. Prior to coming to Elon, some of their leadership experiences included the creation of clubs committed to diversity and inclusion, volunteering on political campaigns, serving as the drum major for their school’s marching band and much more.

They also have a great list of music that represents their various personalities and style: Check out their playlist here.
