Becoming a Leader

My leadership roles taught me the importance of empathy, acceptance, and understanding. I learned so much about digging deeper into the motivations of others. That skill helps with everything I do now.

Fun Fact: Alumna Rita Niemann '51 donated both St. Francis and Clare statues to the university. They have now become an iconic symbol of our Franciscan spirit. St. Francis arms are wide open to invite all who enter.
