What is SLAM?

The Student Leadership and Ministry (SLAM) team is a leadership development and faith formation program for undergraduate students interested in providing faith-based leadership and outreach to students across campus, and who can commitment to reflecting deeply and consistently on the call to leadership and ministry.  We work together to foster the Dominican spirit by becoming leaders who embody the Four Pillars - Community, Prayer, Service, and Study.  SLAM is not a student organization or social club, but rather a leadership commitment that involves working and reflecting with the University Ministry staff, fellow SLAM team members, and other partners across campus to build the Dominican University community.
