Become a better leader

Emerging Leaders is a University of Rochester resource group for staff and faculty interested in professional growth and leadership.

Cheers to the growth and development of University of Rochester staff and faculty

The Emerging Leaders group at the University of Rochester was created to support the growth and professional development of University staff and faculty of all backgrounds, ages, and levels.

At times, it may seem as though University of Rochester employees operate in separate worlds. However, all 31,000 of us are on the same team. From Gibbs Street to the banks of the Genesee River to patient rooms, we are all one University of Rochester community.

The Emerging Leaders group aims to help strengthen workplace effectiveness through professional development programs and events, enhance leadership abilities, and achieve career growth and success within the University.

It's time to grow
