L.E.A.D. Scholars Program Mission
The L.E.A.D. Scholars program is committed to the leadership
development of incoming freshman students. Incoming freshmen apply
for the scholarship and then are selected based on their leadership
involvement both in high school and in their respective
communities. This scholarship program is a four year process in
which students are involved until they graduate. The program exists
to support and stimulate leadership development throughout a
student’s career at Saint Leo University. By embracing the
Benedictine values held by the University, the program strives to
foster an environment that encourages excellence, personal
development, respect (for self and others), community, integrity,
and responsible stewardship, as well as to develop well-rounded
students. By taking advantage of the leadership opportunities
offered, such as taking courses, attending workshops, and getting
involved on campus, students will develop leadership skills they
can utilize for the rest of their lives.
1.To assist students in exploring their potential as leaders in
a complex world.
2.To provide opportunities for students to engage in discussion
concerning leadership within their relationships, their community,
and their world.
3.To encourage students to explore ways to better serve their
communities through community service, stewardship opportunities,
and community coalitions.
4.To strengthen the premise that leaders can lead with integrity
and moral purpose.
5.To develop student leaders who are willing to use their mind,
body, and soul to be the best leaders they possibly can.
