Emerging Leaders Initiative (ELI) is a weekly program that aims to advance the leadership skills of Xavier's first-year students. We explore leadership in relation to the individual and group through a variety of interactive activities and discussion. The program is facilitated by upper-class student leaders and aims to help first-year students enhance their skills and form connections with other Xavier leaders.

Emerging Leaders Retreat (ELR) is an overnight retreat designed for first- and second-year students beginning their leadership development journey. It provides an opportunity for students to learn from their peers and develop their own leadership skills while also serving as a catalyst for self-discovery and relationship building. A large portion of the retreat focuses on the concept of "team" and encourages students to build relationships with other Xavier student leaders.
