Are you interested in learning more about leadership and engagement on campus? The UleaD Emerging Leaders Program is a cohort based initiative for first and second year students that will bring participants together for monthly sessions to develop a range of leadership skills and abilities such as effectively leading change, resolving conflict, motivating others, exploring identity, and practicing self-care and resilience.


The Women’s Leadership Immersion is a four-day program for junior and senior female identifying students that provides critical skills as they prepare for their next steps after graduation. As an experiential learning opportunity, participants move back to campus early from winter break in order to take part in the immersion. Facilitated by a variety of women leaders from the University and City of Dayton community, this program will offer women a chance to explore leadership, networking, salary negotiation, career advancement, and financial health in the context of navigating vocation. Additionally, participants engage in a (how to) networking social and service project in the Dayton community.


Held annually in October, the Fall Leadership Conference is an opportunity to explore and develop your leadership skills.

As a result of attending the Fall Leadership Conference, students will be able to:

  • Identify leadership as an action/value and not as a position/title
  • Define leadership in terms of service to others
  • Connect leadership skills to Marianist values
  • Identify practical leadership skills useful on campus and beyond
  • Commit to making one change in their classroom, organization, or community

The Leadership Series addresses the need for ongoing training and personal and professional development for student leaders at the University of Dayton. Participants will engage in workshops and/or online modules to strengthen their leadership knowledge, skills and abilities.

We currently offer dozens of live and online workshops to meet the needs of every leader.
