We are world class academics, intentional community, servant leadership, and spirituality. At Leadership Seminars, you will experience all of these unique qualities that make Notre Dame home.
Over the course of the 10-day program you and your peers will be challenged and encouraged to enhance your critical thinking, research, and presentation skills, while tackling complex global issues like war, race, and the environment. Notre Dame faculty share their expertise in small class settings and lay the foundation for peer to peer learning to equip students with the tools to become globally conscientious servant leaders.
Our Resident Counselors (RCs) are current Notre Dame undergraduates who work directly with you to support and mentor you throughout your college experience. RCs also facilitate on campus events and serve alongside you in community projects. Plus, they are just about the most awesome people you will meet!
"This has been an incredible experience that has greatly impacted my understanding of the world. I'm sure many young people can relate to the feeling of 'The world has so many problems and I just want to get out there and help out in any way I can.' It's a combination of anger towards injustice, confusion towards the complexities of the issues, compassion towards others, and excitement towards a better future...I have realized the amount of opportunities that have been placed in front of me, and therefore the amount of responsibility I possess to be an agent of positive change. I can't wait to get started." -Joseph Carper, NDLS2019
