Support and Services

Resources for the MLI include a dedicated print collection and reading space on Emmanuel's Cardinal Cushing Library mezzanine, as well as electronic resources, including the Leadership Development Channel, licensed for the Emmanuel community. The MLI book collection continues to grow. Additionally, the MLI has gathered articles and case studies on ethics, leadership and contemplative practices to augment discussions among Emmanuel faculty, students and staff (see links below).

Campus support services, including the Career Center and the Academic Resource Center, promote leadership by assisting student efforts in pursuit of nationally recognized fellowships and by supporting the academic, career and personal goals of Emmanuel students.
