“And take a look at yourself too! Never be satisfied with what you already are, if you want to be what you are not yet." ~ St. Augustine

Leadership is not a characteristic reserved for the extraordinary. Discover the leader within you, explore your personal core values, and connect with other students.

The Villanova Leadership Program hosts prominent leaders with decades of experience as guest speakers every semester.


The Villanova Leadership Program has three core pillars:

I. Shining a light on prominent leadership theories

II. Sharing useful leadership tips and tricks that members can apply immediately

III. Providing opportunities to network with other students and campus leaders



Registration for the Fall 2020 Semester is now closed. There will be a Spring 2021 VLP as well. Be on the look out for that. Please reach out to Jack Sherwood ( with any questions or concerns.

The VLP can typically host a maximum of 200 students per semester. Registration is free and open to all students. Students that attend four of our six workshops will receive a Certificate of Leadership and are invited to attend a leadership dinner. 

Topics for these fun and interactive workshops include Attributes of Effective Leadership, Strategies for Influencing Others, Interpersonal Intelligence and Relationships, Effective Communication, and Principles of Ethical Leadership.
