Student Leadership Corps

The purpose of the Student Leadership Corps (SLC) is to help prepare students to take the "next step" in their leadership development. The group is for sophomore students who are just beginning on their leadership journey, but it is also helpful for students who want to enhance their leadership abilities. Members of the SLC will spend the fall semester learning about various aspects of leadership.

Vision Statement

Student Leadership Corps (SLC) is a small group of sophomore students who come together to further improve their individual and collective leadership skills through self-examination, open group communication, and trust. SLC members will develop a deeper knowledge of themselves as persons and as value-driven leaders while at the same time examining theoretical concepts of leadership. Through group meetings, individual meetings, and reflection, SLC members will be better prepared to assume leadership roles at Loyola and beyond.
