The Benedictine Leadership Studies program is a student affairs initiative in partnership with academic and administrative colleagues. Each year, the program invites applications from freshman students of all majors who have an interest in the study of leadership principles and a desire to experience leadership roles through their years at Saint Vincent College.
The Rule of Saint Benedict serves as the cornerstone leadership model, exposing students to a deeper understanding of leadership in their personal and professional lives and in service to the local, national and global community.
