The Program

SLFP 07The Student Leader Fellowship Program (SLFP) is a two-year, nationally recognized leadership development program. Committed to developing competent, ethical, and community-centered leaders, the SLFP provides student fellows with a series of unique experiences, which can be organized into six component areas.

  • Every September, student fellows attend an overnight Fall Retreat at Bay Cliff Health Camp in Big Bay.
  • During their first semester in the SLFP, student fellows take UN 250: Leadership Theory and Practice, a highly interactive, two-credit course.¬†
  • For the entire first year, each student fellows is paired with a mentor from the community. The mentor exposes the student fellow to different leadership opportunities in Marquette and beyond.
  • During the second year of the program, student fellows apply the leadership skills they have developed by planning, organizing, and implementing their own Community Service Internship (CSI).
  • Throughout both years, student fellows are expected to complete at least 15 Skill Builders! workshops
  • Student fellows also attend various Special Occasions and get together for a variety of service projects and social events.
