The First Year Leadership Program - FYLP allows students to explore their leadership strengths while connecting with other Redhawks through fun activities led by upper-class student facilitators! 

FYLP (pronounced flip) participants attend six two-hour weekly sessions with topics related to self-leadership during the fall semester. We offer two FLYP Cohorts - either Mondays or Thursdays - from 4:30 - 6:30 p.m. FLYP participants who attend all six weekly sessions will graduate from the program

As a FYLP participant, you will: 

  • Connect with the facilitators, who are upper-class student leaders in Student Government, Greek Life, and other student organizations. The University’s Student Regent is also one of the FYLP facilitators this year!  
  • Get to know other new SEMO students who you might not otherwise meet. 
  • Gain insight into your personality type, leadership style, and character strengths through self-assessments and session activities. 
  • Receive a Certificate of Graduation from a University leadership program by the end of October during your first year at SEMO! This is an excellent addition to your resume. Being a FYLP graduate can also open doors to other opportunities at the University. 
  • FYLP is open to all new SEMO students who are in good judicial standing with the University.
