What is EVOLVE?

EVOLVE is about helping you become the best version of yourself and fostering the impact you can have as a leader on campus and for a lifetime. Spend 8 weeks learning with 35-45 of your peers. We want students who are interested in personal development and have a desire to lead positive change. A leader must start with the person in the mirror and EVOLVE will serve as the perfect medium for this adventure.  Effective leaders will always be needed in every realm of life. What you learn by participating in EVOLVE will serve you throughout your academic and professional career.

What To Expect From EVOLVE

As an EVOLVer students will have the opportunity to:

  • Learn about different leadership styles
  • Cultivate their personal leadership brand
  • Network with a community of rising leaders at Vanderbilt
  • Develop leadership skills that will aid them in creating change in the Vanderbilt, Nashville, and global community
