Leadership Academy

Leadership Academy

The Leadership Academy is focused on developing our student-athletes from the inside out by providing programming, speakers, and opportunities for growth. The academy is broken up into two groups, to facilitate discussion that meets student-athletes exactly where they are at in their journey.

Rising Saints is the first phase of the Leadership Academy, a program that all student-athletes will participate in their first and sophomore years. The mission is to engage all student-athletes in personal growth and exploration of their own leadership style through self-awareness, learn about leadership styles, and to establish a foundation of individual leadership that they can expand on through their time at D’Youville with their teams and in the classroom. 

Soaring Saints is the second phase of Leadership Academy. It is focused on supporting the leadership and transition of junior and senior student-athletes. The mission is to provide opportunities for student-athletes to learn the leadership skills to enhance team culture, communication techniques, and how to apply the professional leadership skills they need to be prepared for life after D’Youville.

D'Youville student-athletes are able to access Leadership Academy recordings in the D'Youville Sharepoint website at: Saints Athletics
