Leadership Team

The Leadership Team of the Magis Emerging Leadership Program is comprised of 5 upperclassmen who serve as mentors throughout the program experience. These 5 Mentors are mostly selected from previous cohorts of the program as well as from the larger USF student leader community. Among the 5 mentors, 1 serves as the Lead Mentor for the program. The Lead Mentor plays a significant role in the management and facilitation of the program. 

The Leadership Team is guided by a full-time professional staff member, the Program Director for the Change the World From Here Institute, who designs, facilitates, and coaches those engaged in the program.
