Leadership Programs

Be inspired.

Each month Leadership Café features a special guest to speak about their journey and experiences which have informed their worldview about the meaning of leadership. Guests share their stories and insights about the defining challenges and opportunities that have shaped who they are and how they lead across different contexts. By sharing their stories, our students will gain perspective that broadens their view of leadership and how they aspire to lead.

Leadership Cafés are open to all students (free of charge) and serve complimentary coffee, tea and dessert. Cosponsored by Loyola's Circle of Omicron Delta Kappa.

Join us at 7pm in the Reading Room on Monday 1/29,  Wednesday 2/21, and Tuesday 3/20.

Be challenged.

Through the Greyhound Leadership Challenge (GLC), first year students explore leadership as personal choice and navigate opportunities available to develop and practice your leadership at Loyola. When you accept the challenge, you commit to exploring your leadership at a deeper level through a series of programs in the fall semester.

To register for GLC, participants must able available to attend the Leadership Fair, Pre-Summit Workshop and Greyhound Leadership Summit.

Be engaged.
