Once you have begun your Leadership Experience, submit your ELE application through the MyKU Portal here.

Reflection Question: This reflection consists of three parts: For the first paragraph, please summarize concisely what you did and the activity(ies) time commitment(s). Next, tell us about a specific experience that challenged you to take a smart risk, enact positive change, or practice inclusive leadership. How did that experience change you? Finally, tie your experience back to your education: how has this experience shaped your learning?

Note: In order to maintain relevance and significance, your reflection should be submitted within one semester of the completion of the ELE.
