Leadership Institute Shield

Our Definition of Leadership

The Leadership Institute is grounded in the Dominican values of veritas (truth) and caritas (love). Leadership is using YOUR strengths to listen, inspire and empower others to be the best they can be and make a difference in the world.

The Objectives of the Leadership Institute are to

Assist all students in learning their strengths and building authentic Self-Confidence to enable them to fully utilize their talents and unique abilities.

Motivate students to be Joyful Learners, so that they face problems with a positive attitude by seeing possibilities, creating solutions and helping others.

Encourage students to become Global Citizens, so that they are aware and respect other cultures and races, and honor and foster a culture of diversity and inclusion.

Teach students to be Compelling Communicators so that they are present and active in their daily lives, speaking with confidence and clarity, and writing with conviction.

We Have Three Active Components of the Leadership Institute:
