First 2 Lead (Leadership Academy) events are held annually and explore unique attributes of effective, values-driven leadership and public service. Workshops emphasize ethical decision-making, team building, multiculturalism, digital responsibility, and conflict resolution. EIP’s goal is to produce civically engaged students who are leaders in their respective communities.


Saturday Events are one-time opportunities for EIP participants. Students who miss Saturday Events will not have the opportunity to make-up any missed sessions or receive credit for attending. Missed weekend events will reflect negatively on the students' overall attendance record in the program. Attendance to Saturday Events is mandatory.<!
