Our philosophy is based on Robert Greenleaf’s Ten Characteristics of a Servant Leader: listening, empathy, healing, awareness, persuasion, conceptualization, foresight, stewardship, commitment to the growth of others, and building community.

By offering you opportunities to serve through local and national service experiences, you can better understand our Vincentian mission and what it means to be a servant leader at St. John’s University.

We combine indirect and direct service opportunities with guided reflection in an effort to create an experience that can change the way one views their leadership role. Through service and leadership development, we are creating the next generation of leaders who will serve our city, our country and the global community.
