Joseph and Edith Habiger Institute for Catholic Leadership

The Joseph and Edith Habiger Institute for Catholic Leadership answers the call to provide Catholics students at the University of St. Thomas a unique context for leadership formation which goes beyond the development of skills to a more organic and collaborative model of Catholic leadership in the academy, in the Church, and in civil and professional life. In addition to assisting the formation of many young Catholic leaders, the Institute is a place of thoughtful analysis concerning what it means to be a Catholic leader in our modern society.

The Institute will also provide opportunities for Catholic Studies graduate students—priests, laity and religious—to explore new approaches to leadership in the Church, in lay apostolates and parish ministry, and in professional, civic and political life.
