Welcome from the Dean

Welcome to The Dean's Leadership Program!

During 2009, we launched this engaging new program with a special group of Leavey School of Buisness first-year students. The program was designed to develop students' leadership potential and provide exposure to the breadth of opportunities the Leavey School of Business has to offer.

By augmenting rigorous curriculum with a thoughtful examination of personal interests, students will be on a path to pursue their leadership and career goals. With guidance from experts and mentoring from senior students, participants will be encouraged to consider the many ways in which they will impact the campus, the community, and the world.

Each quarter, students participate in seminars created to help them learn more about themselves, available leadership experiences, and the Leavey School of Business community. Seminar topics will cover a wide range of SCU experiences, including campus involvement opportunities, major/minor information, preparation for internships and building community. Additonally, participants meet current students and faculty who share their personal leadership stories in small discussion groups. Together, these session provide a great foundation for the SCU experience.

We are excited about the many ways the Dean's Leadership Program will help participants make the most out of their first year in the Leavey School of Business at Santa Clara University. To learn more about joining the Dean's Leadership Program, visit the admission page.
