Leadership is calling. Those who answer, aspire to lead through deep-rooted convictions to service and the common good. Guided by our core Franciscan values of collegiality, contemplation, humility, peacemaking, and service, Alvernia University cultivates ethical leaders with moral courage to do well and do good.
Alvernia offers world class leadership and ethics programs enhanced by community engagement and service opportunities. It’s a combination that deepens the theoretical knowledge imparted in the classroom through practical real-world applications – all while making an immediate impact on the community.
Our approach to leadership is multi-disciplinary. Our programs focus on more than just basic skill building. We take a broader view that teaches students to understand and value context, constraints, and relationships in the world around us.
Alvernia's Leadership Department develops high performers who are prepared to make a positive difference. Our interns and graduates are in high demand and are making an impact nationally.
