Student Leadership Programs
Your personal leadership journey starts here!
Student Leader Involvement Opportunities
We believe that becoming a leader should be informative, meaningful, and exciting! Whether you're a first-year student who would like to start developing a foundation in leadership, someone who wants to gain expertise through leading a group, or a senior who wants to partner with a professional mentor, getting involved with Leadership Programs offers hands-on learning experiences that teach critical leadership skills.
Griffin Student Leadership Institute
GSLI offers three levels of leadership certification, depending on your goals.
Clubs & Organizations
Get involved to make friends and pursue personal interests — but also to build practical, real-world skills such as communication, problem solving, working in teams, conflict resolution, and more!
More Leadership Opportunities
Be one of the friendly faces who welcomes our brand new Griffins to campus and helps them transition to life at GMercyU. You'll take part in activities that share our culture, traditions, and expectations of the University.
GMercyU Leadership Conferences
Each year, GSLI holds a campus-wide leadership conference where the entire GMercyU community is invited to participate. All Griffins are encouraged to attend these leadership conferences, whether you're a member of GSLI or not.
Past presenters have included Pamela Rainey Lawler, founder of Philabundance and Dr. Tom Segar, Vice President for Student Affairs at Shepherd University.
Off-Campus Leadership Conferences
All Griffins are encouraged to attend leadership conferences, whether you're a member of GSLI or not. In recent years, students have attended the Association for the Promotion of Campus Activities (APCA) Conference and the National Orientation Directors Association (NODA) conference, among others.
