Villanova Leadership Academy

The goal of the advanced series is for current and future student leaders to understand and apply many of the theories and practices of leadership. This unique program will help prepare you to take on leadership positions both at Villanova and beyond through interactive lectures on leadership for any leaders at Villanova seeking to learn dynamics of leadership.

Each Session is designed for the student to explore the leadership experience and perspective of a staff or faculty member within the Villanova community. All students are paired with a student mentor and faculty staff mentor to further investigate leadership styles and concepts. Students who attend 5/7 workshops will receive a certificate of completion at the end of the program.

Seven Leadership Academy workshops will take place on Fridays from 1:30–2:15 pm in Dougherty, East Lounge beginning in January. Each participant will be paired with an upperclassmen student mentor and staff mentor. Participants will receive a certificate upon completing the program.

Registration is now closed.
