The Freshman Leadership Program (FLP) is a nationally-recognized living and learning community on Creighton University's campus. Accepting 60 first year students, FLP strives to provide opportunities for students to develop their own leadership styles. The members of the program are given sophomore mentors with whom they attend weekly seminars and service to explore the different pillars of leadership. Additionally, the members of the program work on two major community activism projects, attend a ropes course and retreat, and complete a final portfolio project to show the growth they have made throughout the year. FLP provides an environment based off of three pillars: community, development, and character. With these pillars, FLP empowers students to take the first step towards leadership on campus.




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.
