The Student Leadership Institute (SLI) is deeply committed to providing the best possible leadership education, development, and training for DePaul University students. With a co-curricular, diverse and community based relational leadership model as our central focus, students will acquire and develop leadership skills they can use to provide socially responsible leadership within various professional and organizational settings.

SLI provides leadership education and development through leadership workshops, a certificate program (with the opportunity to earn 5 certificates), the Inspiring Voices Speaker Series, our annual Winter Leadership Conference, and customized workshops for university organizations and departments. Workshops are facilitated by highly skilled staff and faculty members who apply leadership models in the workforce as a part of their daily lives.

SLI also serves as a networking resource for students seeking to build professional, organizational, and personal relationships within and outside of DePaul. It does this through networking, collaboration with other offices, and an opportunity to develop mentor relationships.

The Student Leadership Institute is excited about your presence at DePaul and looks forward to working with you.
