The Freshman Leadership Program is a nationally-recognized program which provides an alternative to regular residence hall life at Creighton University. In addition to living in community with each other on the 9th floor of Kiewit Hall, the FLP members are enrolled in a course together, attend speakers, serve in the community, complete a leadership portfolio project, and attend other leadership based events together in order to develop strong leadership capabilities.
The Freshman Leadership Program strives to cultivate leadership and self-development through a living-learning community. Freshmen are empowered through their community to become ethical citizen-scholars through engagement in community service, leadership seminars, peer mentoring, and academic coursework. These experiential activities enable the individual members to become leaders for and with others.
The learning objectives are based on based of the following three pillars of FLP: community, development, and character.
1. Freshman completing FLP will be able to demonstrate effective communication skills.
2. Freshmam completing FLP will be able to demonstrate a mastery of leadership concepts and theories.
3. Freshman completing FLP will be able to demonstrate an understanding of the Jesuit mission and philosophy as it relates to their daily lives.
