Emerging Leaders is an interactive learning experience intended to introduce students to leadership and new opportunities at Nebraska Methodist College. The program's focus is to develop successful student leaders who have the desire to become involved in campus and community life. To earn the certificate, students are required to attend a series of guest lectures and participate in leadership development activities. The leadership series schedule is emailed to students at the start of each fall semester. Certificates are given at Student Awards Night in April of each academic year. For more information about the program please contact Erika Pritchard at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Supplemental Instruction (SI) consists of peer facilitated academic support provided outside of class time each week. SI is provided as a complement to our historically difficult courses across our academic curriculum. The SI leader attends the actual class and conducts SI sessions to supplement the learning that occurred during class time. Students are encouraged to take advantage of this group study time that is offered at no cost. For additional information on SI please contact Lisa Flairty at email@example.com
