Benedictine Leadership Institute

UNDERSTANDING LIFE’S BIG QUESTIONS: THE POWER OF A BENEDICTINE EDUCATION.

Today more than ever, the world needs leaders who lead with both heart and mind.

We need problem-solvers and critical thinkers who are ready to face the unknowns of the 21st century and a world that changes at lightning speed. We need leaders who are ready to make tough, ethical decisions and who know what it means to make a difference in the lives of others.

At Mount Marty College, we believe every student has the potential to serve the world and transform lives, organizations, and communities. We believe that it is our responsibility to foster that service and leadership within you. 

As St. Benedict asks, “Listen carefully… with the ear of your heart.”  You have an impact to make. 

 

Unlike anything you'll find at another college, the Benedictine Leadership Institute will help you become the person you were created to be, a person of greatness that impacts the world.

FROM THE GRAND CANYON TO THE ROCKY MOUNTAINS

Through the Benedictine Leadership Institute —Mount Marty's renewed core curriculum — you'll be guided by St. Benedictine’s words, which guide you in learning to lead by first seeking to understand the world and your place in it. During your four years at the Mount, you and all of your classmates will … 

  • EXPLORE THE LESSONS IN LIFE’S PEAKS AND VALLEYS THROUGH TRIPS WITH YOUR CLASS TO THE GRAND CANYON AND THE ROCKIES, AT NO ADDITIONAL COST ABOVE TUITION.

  • FIND YOUR PURPOSE IN THIS WORLD BY ASKING QUESTIONS LIKE “WHO AM I?” AND “HOW CAN I MAKE A DIFFERENCE WITH MY DEGREE?”

  • CREATE MENTORSHIP WITH PROFESSORS WHO CHALLENGE YOU TO THINK CRITICALLY AND PROBLEM-SOLVE LIFE’S CHALLENGES --  SKILLS NEEDED TO SUCCEED IN FUTURE CAREERS.

  • LEARN THROUGH INTERNSHIPS AND COMMUNITY SERVICE OPPORTUNITIES THAT SHOW YOU HOW TO BE A LEADER AND SERVE OTHERS AS YOU ANALYZE AND DEFINE HOW YOU LIVE YOUR VALUES.

  • EXAMINE THE ROLE YOU PLAY IN PROMOTING AND CREATING A MORE JUST AND CIVIL COMMUNITY.

Educated in the theory and practice of the Catholic Benedictine values of community, hospitality, life-long learning, and awareness of God — rooted in the sacredness of the human person and all God’s creation — Mount Marty graduates lead with vision, serve with virtue, and impact with value.
