Activate O'Neill

Activate O'Neill: A leadership program for students from historically excluded groups

Activate O’Neill is a program tailored to students from historically excluded groups to build personal and professional networks, provide academic and career support, and to fulfill the O’Neill School's mission to transform the world to be a more just and equitable place. As a student entering this program, you will have access to specialized programming such as peer and alumni engagement, group travel, and leadership development.

About the program

After acceptance into the program, you will be sorted into multi-major, multi-year cohorts based on the semester you enter, to form lasting bonds with your cohort until graduation and beyond.

As an Activate leader, you will attend a weekly session where you can engage in workshops and programming or use the time for study hall. In addition to weekly programming, you will qualify to travel to a group summit in Indianapolis, strengthening bonds, community, and professional networks with your cohort and O’Neill alumni.
