About the Institute for Leadership
Mount St. Mary's University is founded on the four pillars of faith, discovery, leadership and community. The Leadership Institute has been assigned the important task of enlivening the University's leadership pillar and contributing to the core mission of the Mount.
"Mount St. Mary's is a Catholic university committed to education in the service of
truth; we seek to cultivate a community of learners formed by faith, engaged in discovery, and empowered for leadership in the Church, the professions, and the world."
The Institute for Leadership will prepare all Mount St. Mary's students to be a positive example for leadership and contributing citizens to the world we live in.
Starting in the classroom with interdisciplinary and cross cultural leadership courses and proceeding to a variety of co curricular 'hands on' learning activities, the Institute moves to enrich the Mount experience and empower the leaders of tomorrow with intelligence and compassion.
