Lead with a heart for others.

Located in Washington D.C. — home to some of the most powerful leaders and decision-makers on the planet — Catholic University of America is nurturing a different type of leader. One not motivated by accolades or titles, but by servanthood and love.

We model true Christian leadership after the example set by Jesus Christ, who washed the feet of his disciples at the last supper — a profound act of love and service — and instructed them (and us) to humbly serve others in the same way.

Every year, over 200 students carry out the mission of the Gospel as they practice humble servant leadership through the various Campus Ministry leadership positions listed below. As a student leader, you will experience personal development and faith formation with the help of Campus Ministry pastoral staff.
