Learn more about Dinner Dialogues

The Leadership Dinner Dialogue program was created to provide a space for students to engage in informal conversations about leadership. Each program will ask a question or explore an idea related to current trends in leadership development. The Leadership Dinner Dialogue is not a workshop or formal presentation. It's a space created to promote an engaging dialogue among members of the Loyola University Chicago community. Student Leadership Development staff will be present for each program to help facilitate the conversation. Dinner and good conversations will be provided! Topics and dates for the 2016 - 2017 academic year will be announced soon.


**The Division of Student Development strives to support the university’s mission by offering programs that foster leadership development, as well as by serving and supporting students as they experience the personal transformations of a Jesuit education. With that in mind, some staff resources have recently been reallocated. As a result, at the end of the 2017-2018 academic year, there will no longer be a stand-alone unit that exists for the sole purpose of coordinating student leadership development programs. Starting in the 2018-2019 academic year, ELP will be housed within SAGA, and The People’s Institute will be housed within SDMA. The Leadership for Social Change Learning Community will continue to be coordinated by ResLife, with Shannon Howes serving as the administrative partner for this program. Students are encouraged to connect with these three programs, as well as with the many additional student leadership development experiences that exist in other areas on campus.**
