Leadership and Personal Development

Residence in College offers many opportunities for the development of leadership skills.  All  residents are encouraged to play a full and active part in the College community by participating in the many activities or volunteering through joining a committee, convening a sport or taking on a more specific leadership role in third  and fourth year, either as a member of the Student Club Executive or as a Resident Assistant. The opportunities offered by College are a great preparation for professional life. The "Becoming a Professional" programme  and "Women Speak" series provide exemplary role models for current residents. Duchesne College  prides itself on its point of difference in providing a number of opportunities for personal development in support of mental health. Whether it be Yoga, conducted by our resident instructor, or "Art in the Afternoon" to increase mindfulness, or "Mindfulness Mondays" when students have an opportunity to reflect on their spirituality, all add to the range of support Duchesne offers to all students.
