President’s Leadership

Fellows Program (PLFP)

About the Program

The goal of the SFSU President’s Leadership Fellows Program (PLFP) is to provide students with the soft skills that national research has shown employers seek in job candidates. These skills complement the hard skills also needed in order to be competitive in today’s job market, including resume and cover letter composition, interview skills, networking, etc. Students accepted to the PLFP take part in workshops focusing on leadership, teamwork, critical thinking, unconscious bias, emotional intelligence and sexual harassment in the workplace. Fellows learn to recognize their competencies and how to apply them in meaningful and relevant ways as they transition to job-readiness.

  • Learn to articulate your value
  • Enhance your problem solving and critical thinking skills
  • Network with peers, staff, and consultants

The Fellows Program began in Fall 2014 with the generous support of the Eustace Kwan Family Foundation. The pilot program started in the College of Business with twenty five students. The number of Fellows accepted to the program increased to fifty students in spring 2015, and to one hundred students each semester thereafter. The success of the program resulted in additional support from the Eustace Kwan Family Foundation in December 2016. With the full support of President Wong and campus leadership, the program expanded to accept one hundred fifty applicants from students across the six colleges. The President’s Leadership Fellows Program will accept two hundred students in spring 2018, and two hundred fifty students in fall 2018.
