We believe leadership is based in relationships and influencing others to collaborate, address problems, and adapt to change. Leadership can be practiced by individuals in any position, with or without formal authority.
Our programs are unique in their foundation in the mission and traditions of Saint Mary's College, their developmental and transformative goals, and approach to developing leaders. Our graduates know who they are as persons and are prepared to make changes in their world.
