SLU strives to instill future tense thinking; character-driven decision making; ownership of biblical values; and a commitment to influence through service. SLU believes that God has called us to prepare the next generation to Think, Dream, and Lead through a challenging series of leadership training processes that equip them to have a Renaissance Mind, The Heart of a Patriot, The Soul of a Saint, The Discipline of a Champion and the Influence of a Leader.
