ECCEL Empowers Students to be Principled and Socially Conscious Global Leaders
The Eleanor Roosevelt Center’s ECCEL program prepares students to lead in all aspects of their lives – personal, academic, professional and community. With a focus on self-discovery, skill development, experiential learning and global citizenship, the program will contribute significantly to students’ academic achievement and workforce success and prepare them to lead in a global society.
“ECCEL has changed the way I thought…I believe I am much more capable of leading change after everything we’ve been taught. The confidence and team skills that ECCEL has instilled in me have paved the way for future success.” ~ Andrew, SUNY Orange
During this transformational program, up to 36 students from four campuses will bring their passion and leadership potential to life. Throughout the academic year you will focus on leadership development through a series of three weekend retreats with students from Dutchess, Orange, Rockland and Ulster County Community Colleges and regularly scheduled on-campus activities and workshops for students on their home campus.
Students accepted into the ECCEL program will be identified as Louis B. Greenspan Scholars and will receive a special certificate of completion at the end of the program.
