FUEL: Fordham University Emerging Leaders

Fordham University Emerging Leaders (FUEL) Program

Leadership is a skill learned during your experiences at Fordham that can be translated into your years after college.  FUEL, just one of the Leadership Development Programs offered through the Office of Student Leadership & Community Development, is specifically targeted at first and second year students who have been identified as having leadership potential. 


For more information concerning FUEL, please e-mail Dan Patterson, Associate Director for Transition Year Experience at


Program Goals

Through workshops, seminars, guest speakers, and interactive sessions, students learn valuable lessons regarding leadership skills.  Students will have the opportunity to develop self-confidence, increase self-awareness and increase their knowledge of and pride in Fordham.


FUEL 2011
FUEL helps to bring these characteristics out in students in order to benefit the students, their clubs, and the Fordham community as a whole.  It is our hope that characteristics developed as a result of participation in the FUEL program will also be utilized by students in their everyday lives.


Look for the FUEL brochure for more specific information on the sessions for the next iteration of the FUEL program in Spring 2014.


You must attend 8 out of 16 sessions in order to graduate from the program.  Last year's sessions included True Colors personality inventory, stress management, public speaking, and Jesuit leadership.
