In the Benedictine Leadership Program (BLP), you will learn about leadership, the Benedictine values, and how the two intersect. This program is dedicated to preparing students for leadership roles and responsibilities in service to the campus community. You will reflect deeply on your own personal values and examine how these values will help you address the complex problems facing our shared humanity.
Note: This program is required of all applicants for Resident Assistants, Orientation Leaders, and AHANA Mentors. It is also highly encouraged for all students interested in other leadership positions, such as the Associated Students of Saint Martin's University (ASSMU).
