SLU 101 Vision

One thinker captivated with God-honoring ideas can transform the future.
One dreamer can change the world.
One leader willing to do the hard stuff can be used to do more than they could ever have imagined.

Thinkers…dreamers…leaders…needed now, not later.

Through SLU 101 Reimagined, students will be able to experience engaging sessions taught by thought leaders who are experts in their fields, all provided in a safe, online environment. Each student will receive a Journey Box filled with hands-on, experiential materials provided to keep the sessions impactful and life-changing. Reimagining, dreaming and creating are all concepts that we teach our students and they will walk away from this experience with a renewed sense of purpose to become the leaders they are called to be.
