Introduction to Arcadia, Vol. V (2013)

Being a Servant Leader @ Seton Hall University

As a Catholic university, the topic of Servant Leadership is essential in following Catholic Social Teaching. Seton Hall University has long promoted that its students lead both in and out of the classroom. Servant Leadership can be seen in everyday life, from helping a friend with homework to making a trip to a soup kitchen. There are many opportunities to promote Servant Leader-ship at Seton Hall University, including events and trips run by Campus Minis-try and DOVE, the office of volunteer efforts as well as the Center for Servant Leadership.

In this issue of Arcadia, the idea of Servant Leadership is examined in many different ways. For example, there are articles that speak of how Servant Leadership is inclusive and how there are no limitations as to how one can be a servant of God in their everyday lives. This issue shows that being a servant of God comes in many ways, shapes and forms, ranging from working as a sacristan to volunteering at a soup kitchen. Serving God does not come from one’s words but from one’s actions and how one lives one’s life. Sacrifice is also a large component of being a Servant Leader, as one would have to sacrifice the time that might have been spent on oneself to help others and as shown in some of the service trips ran by DOVE, many students will devote their Spring Break to travel to foreign countries—Haiti or El Salvador—to volunteer in many institutions in those countries, such as schools, nursing homes and/or hospitals. An important concept in Servant Leadership is humility, as these acts are done with compassion and kindness as opposed to being done as a method of acquiring status.

In closing, this issue celebrates the value of Servant Leadership seen here at Seton Hall University, with the hopes that these students will continue being Servant Leaders their whole life. Servant Leadership is a major part of practicing what we all believe, not only in the Catholic faith, but all human beings of all faiths. It is a concept that truly does not and should not have borders or limitations.

The Oxford Issue
The Oxford Summer Study Abroad Program
The Center for Catholic Studies and the G.K. Chesterton Institute for Faith and Culture sponsor a three credit course, The Foundations of Christian Culture, bi-annually at Oxford University.
