Service Leadership Program

The Service Leadership Program at the Richard A. Chaifetz School of Business is rooted in our Jesuit values at Saint Louis University and our commitment to community engagement.

Through the Service Leadership Program, SLU students grow into leaders who think ethically and innovatively to solve problems with the technical and critical thinking skills they acquire.  As a result, students learn to embrace servant leadership and social change as professional and personal philosophies.

Since its inception in 1996, students have completed more than 100,000 hours of service. Students can volunteer at a variety of service sites in the St. Louis community, including Big Brothers Big Sisters, Ronald McDonald House, Saint Louis University’s Campus Kitchen and many others.
