At the grand opening of the Frank McKenna Centre for Leadership in 2011, Frank McKenna stressed that “the Centre isn't bringing leadership to St.FX; it is bringing a Centre to a university that has a long history of leadership.” Since then, the McKenna Centre has offered leadership opportunities across all disciplines to the St.FX community. We are dedicated to fostering and funding student leadership initiatives, and to providing opportunities and the resources that will allow tomorrow’s leaders to flourish.
Who Are We?
What Sets Us Apart?
Leadership training at the McKenna Centre is inclusive. We are committed to providing all students with the skills and tools they require in order to become the future leaders our world needs. We understand that leadership comes in many forms, and we strive to support and empower not only traditional leaders but also those students who would not readily think of themselves as leaders but who are quietly brimming with potential and brilliant ideas. Social change and important solutions are brought about by a combination of both the direct actions of outspoken leaders as well as the efforts of quiet, indirect leaders. At the McKenna Centre, we insist on the importance of inclusive leadership training for all students, and we support the work of both traditional and non-traditional leaders. We therefore welcome all students who are looking for help in developing ideas and projects. Inclusive leadership training means helping you discover the form of leadership that is best suited to your goals.
“If you have a great university, it can reach across the world. The Frank McKenna Centre for Leadership will have that impact
