The First-year Leadership Program - FyLP (pronounced 'flip') is a series of active sessions offered each Fall semester for students to explore their personal leadership strengths while connecting with other Redhawks through fun activities led by student facilitators (listed below).

FYLP is a University-sponsored leadership program during the Fall semester geared toward new SEMO students. Students interested in participating in FYLP must be in good judicial standing with the University and register online between June 1 - September 7, 2022 (FYLP Registration Form will be linked here beginning June 1st). FYLP takes place in the Unviersity Center on SEMO's Main Campus - online participation not available.

FYLP participants will attend 6 two-hour weekly sessions with topics related to self-leadership. We offer two FYLP Cohorts - either Mondays or Thursdays - from 4:30 - 6:30 p.m.

As a FYLP participant, you will: 

  • Connect with the FYLP facilitators, who are upper-class student leaders in Student Government, Greek Life, and other student organizations.
  • 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.
