The Conference of Mercy Student Leaders is a new student leadership development opportunity sponsored by the Mercy Education System of the Americas.

The Conference of Mercy Student Leaders will be held June 27 – June 30, 2021 at the University of Detroit Mercy in Detroit, Michigan. For questions, please contact Kimberly Baxter.

Due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Conference of Mercy Student Leaders will not be held in 2020.

Who can participate? The conference invites representative student leaders from various school ministries (i.e. student council/student government, ministry team, community service corps leaders) and others whom the school feels will most benefit from our program. We recommend sending rising juniors and/or seniors. Number of representatives per school: 4-6 maximum.

Program goals:

  1. Participants will grow in their understanding of the mission of Mercy and Catherine McAuley.
  2. Participants will engage in Mercy Critical Concerns through a direct service opportunity and education about Mercy ministries.
  3. Participants will enhance individual leadership skills and goals through various exercises and team-building activities.

Coeducational. Critical Concerns. Leadership + Service.
