UDM highlights leadership in our education of the student, service learning, and in student life. Student leaders help us continue the work of Catherine McAuley and Ignatius of Loyola in compassionate care of the poor and marginalized by seeing, feeling, helping, and fostering lasting change.

There are a number of ways you can learn and experience leadership at UDM. You'll be helping yourself and your community in the context of our mission, vision and religious sponsors.
