Villanova Leadership Academy

The goal of the academy 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. After completing 7 or more workshops, students will receive a certificate of completion at the end of the program.

Leadership Academy workshops will take place on Fridays from 1:30–2:30 pm in Dougherty Hall, East Lounge unless noted below.
