Student Leadership & Activities

The purpose of Student Leadership & Activities at Saint Joseph's University is to create opportunities for undergraduate students to make connections and develop a sense of belonging to the University community. We support student-led organizations and programs, train and cultivate leaders, create annual events and provide space for social development to occur. Participation in these opportunities and events will promote student learning, enhance personal growth, and help students realize their full potential as part of their preparation for leading a satisfying and productive life.
