Stonehill offers many ways to grow your ability to lead in ways authentic to your goals and values. At the heart of it all is a simple mantra: Think. Act. Lead. It is an overarching philosophy that helps students make the right choices among the countless academic, professional, personal and spiritual development opportunities available on campus. The program engages each student along a path of success through individualized attention, meaningful feedback and conversation, and opportunities for self-reflection.

  • Think.

    From the moment you arrive on campus, you will be engaged in thoughtful conversations that will inspire and encourage you to explore and articulate who you are. Each first-year student is connected with a faculty advisor and encouraged to seek out a diverse group of mentors who can help establish academic, professional, personal and spiritual goals.

  • Act.

    Stonehill helps first-year students create a four-year action plan that allows you to pursue evolving interests, discuss and reflect on your experiences in meaningful ways, and determine what steps should be taken next. The path is constructed with intentionality, allowing you to better understand and visualize the possibilities ahead, and how specific goals can be achieved.

  • Lead.

    This deliberate, evaluative and strategic process is critical in preparing you for life after Stonehill. Over time, the acquisition of skills, qualifications, competencies and confidence enables you to seek out and assume positions of leadership. The outcome is that by senior year, you are fully prepared for the continuation of your chosen paths beyond graduation.
