Fresno State | Emerging Leaders

Sophie Karas serves as the Leadership Programs Coordinator in the Center for Leadership at Fresno State.   As the Leadership Program Coordinator, Sophie builds the leadership capacity of Fresno State students through the development of personal leadership philosophies applied to campus, community, and national issues.

In addition, Sophie coordinates the Emerging Leaders Retreat (ELR), a three-day leadership training specifically designed for Fresno State students to develop skills to become a successful and influential student/community leaders.  

Having participated in the event in 2018, I can vouch for the program.  I participated in the Program in 2018 while in the MBA Program in the Craig School at Fresno State.  Through the ELR Retreat I participated in many leadership and team building activities.  It was a great experience and I recommend any students at Fresno State who have the opportunity to join the ELR Retreat to do so.  You will not be disappointed.

Sophie and the Center for Leadership help students participating learn to:

  • Build connections to the campus community
  • Develop an awareness of diverse perspectives of leadership
  • Explore leadership through experiential learning and reflection
