Elevate: Rise Up and Lead

About Elevate

Elevate is Drury's newest intensive leadership program. It is designed to shape freshmen and sophomore students to change the leadership of student organizations at Drury. Drury upperclassmen will be facilitating the sessions and passing along valuable knowledge to participating students. Participants will not only walk away with invaluable experiences, but friendships and connections that will continue throughout their collegiate experience and beyond. 

How It Works

A group of 32 freshmen and sophomore students will be accepted into the program. There will be 5 interactive and engaging sessions in the Spring semester, on Wednesday nights from 6:00 - 8:00PM. There will also be a 6th session devoted to an overnight retreat that includes a high ropes course and is facilitated partly by professional staff and partly by Elevate facilitators. Participants will be required to attend all of the sessions including the entire retreat to participate. These dates are listed below:
