Office of Leadership & Student Involvement

The Freshman Leadership Initiative

The Freshman Leadership Initiative (FLI) is a prestigious living/learning community that prepares incoming first-year students for campus life and the various campus leadership opportunities, all while serving as a home-away-from-home during your transition into college. During FLI, new students interact with peers and upperclassmen, making friendships that will carry them throughout their college experience.

As a member of FLI, students will have the opportunity to self-reflect on who they are as a person and leader, join in on community service, develop their leadership skills, and plan large-scale campus events.

FLI is a 3-tiered program focused on Living, Learning, and Leading.

Applications for Fall 2018 will be available in December 2017. Please check back for the link or contact Leslie.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Leslie Cavin, Assistant Director for Leadership Programs
