Servant Leadership Team

Help anchor UP in the spirit and love of Christ!

The Servant Leadership Team (SLT) is a dynamic group of student leaders called to enhance the work of Campus Ministry. Servant Leaders grow as disciples of Jesus through the shared experience of prayer, theological reflection, and community engagement.

Interested students apply to become a part of SLT in the spring semester. After a mutual discernment process focusing on complementary strengths and leadership styles, Campus Ministry staff invite 5–7 students to be key student collaborators and peer ministers for the coming school year. During the summer, the incoming team participates as a group in a retreat or conference to grow in both leadership and spirituality and to begin planning for the coming year.

Students with cut-out of Pope Francis giving out donut holes on the Academic QuadSLT has implemented numerous creative initiatives, such as:

  • Weekly Eucharistic Adoration

  • Weekly newsletters (The Faith Filled Flush)

  • Regular community bonfires

  • The Living Stone small faith-sharing group program

Many members of SLT go on to fill other leadership positions both within Campus Ministry and across campus. Motivated by their love of Christ and his people, SLT alumni have graduated and taken positions as professional lay ministers, teachers of theology, music ministers, and other service professionals.
