Leadership UD

Focused on five priorities, Leadership UD is an annual program that fosters community, connection, collaboration and ownership among faculty and staff. The program is for those who have leadership interest and high potential, regardless of their title, experience or career path - and it offers a variety of benefits to both participants and the University. Since its launch in 2000, more than 300 faculty and staff have completed the program.


Each year, Leadership UD welcomes a new cohort of fellows, who were nominated by their dean or vice president. Through the Fellows Program, participants learn about the University, their own leadership style, and how to use their gifts and talents to influence and inspire others. 

Graduates of the LUD Fellows program are automatically inducted into the Associates Program, where they have the opportunity to attend sessions, continually engage with the University community and further their leadership development.


Within the context of our Catholic and Marianist identity and mission, we aspire to build institutional and individual capacity for leadership by forming a professional community of staff and faculty learners who support and challenge themselves, each other and the University.
