Elevate Fellowship Info Session

ElevateFellowship_Logo_TealTFA.jpg

What is the Elevate Fellowship?

Over the past several years we have received consistent feedback that alumni want intentional development around becoming organizational leaders. From this, the Elevate Fellowship was born. Facilitated in partnership with The University of Chicago Booth School of Business, the program will be focused on Brand, Access, and Skill. We believe by focusing on these areas and tying them together with the thread of Leading with Integrity, we will help craft passionate, determined, and successful leaders.

This Fellowship is open to Senior to Mid Level leaders

This is defined as a non-school based role that has a meaningful impact on students and communities in an organization that is 1 to 3 steps removed from the system/executive level leader in the region. Typically between 7-12 years of professional experience.
