Cardinal Leadership Academy

The Cardinal Leadership Academy takes place Wednesday nights and consists three different Leadership programs for students to increase their leadership competencies, values, skills, and strengths. 
Emerging Leaders takes place in the fall and focuses on individual leadership.
Cardinal Leaders looks at group leadership in the spring.
Boundless is a yearlong program that focuses on community leadership.  




The Cultural Leadership Retreat is a weekend long retreat designed for students to explore cultural identity, discuss leadership within the context of a diverse society, and have conversations about power, ability, and privilege. Participants attending CLR will engage in activities and discussions that will challenge their concepts on these topics.    



Student Leadership Conference


The CatholicU Leadership Conference is a day long event that allows students an opportunity to learn about leadership in many different settings. Conference participants will have the opportunity to attend a keynote speaker session, breakout sessions, interactive table discussions, and poster presentations. Students who participate in Boundless will be presenting their leadership projects to the CatholicU community.
