One U Thriving


Emerging Student Leadership Program

Implemented July 2014

Since 2014, the LGBT Resource Center’s Emerging Student Leadership Program (ESLP) has been providing an opportunity for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer/Questioning, Intersex and Asexual (LGBTQIA+) students to explore and develop their identities as leaders. Often leadership is viewed as positional and hierarchal. However, some of the best leadership provided in our communities is personal rather than positional and so we ask: How do we queer leadership? What does it mean to lead collectively and collaboratively rather than within a hierarchy? ESLP aims to answer those questions and more. We welcome any LGBTQIA+ undergraduate student attending the University of Utah during the Spring 2020 semester to apply, regardless of formal leadership history.
