National Jesuit Student Leadership Conference 2019 at Detroit Mercy

Signage for NJSLC 2019 and Touchdown Jesus sculpture on the McNichols Campus

More than 200 students from 25 Jesuit universities visited our McNichols Campus and the city of Detroit for a weekend of service, leadership, fellowship and fun at the 2019 National Jesuit Student Leadership Conference. Students explored downtown Detroit, participated in leadership breakout sessions, volunteered with children at the Adam Butzel Complex, cleaned up a mural site for a local artist and cut back overgrowth in neighborhood alleyways near campus. Thank you to all advisors, chairs, students and volunteers for making NJSLC 2019 a success.
