The Rev. Don McNeill, C.S.C. Leadership Fellows Program

The Rev. Don McNeill, C.S.C. Leadership Fellows Program offers a select cohort of undergraduates the opportunity to integrate leadership development, major coursework, career goals, and a desire to live as an active citizen working for social change. The program is distinguished by its emphasis on leadership development rooted in Catholic social tradition.

The cohort will acquire the knowledge and practice the skills necessary to master four key competency areas: Understanding Justice, Effective Action, Innovation for Social Change, and Ethical Leadership. Cohort students will form a shared learning community engaged in scholarship, research, and service. Each student is paired with a mentor who will guide them in active discernment as they reflect on the relationship between their vocation and their work for the common good.

At the end of the program McNeill Fellows will be equipped with enhanced leadership skills that allow them to recognize and respond to injustice, motivate others towards works of mercy, and work toward the common good in their professional lives.
