QUEST Leadership Initiative

QUEST Leadership Initiative is designed help Fontbonne students acquire foundational leadership skills, discern their personal strengths, and guide them on their personal vocational journey.

The mission of Fontbonne University is at the core of the QUEST Program – educating students to think critically, act ethically, and assume responsibility as citizens and leaders. Your development as a leader includes a foundation in service and social justice with an emphasis on developing real-world skills that help you motivate and inspire others.

Who Should Participate in the QUEST Leadership Program?

EVERYONE! Any Fontbonne student is welcome to participate in the QUEST program. While it is encourage that students start the program in their first or second year, all students are invited to participate starting at any level.

Each peak has its own unique structure and purpose so while we recommend a certain sequence, students can design their own path of leadership development based on their distinct experience and needs.

What is the QUEST Leadership Initiative?

There are 5 phases (we call them peaks) of the Quest Leadership Initiative. Below is a picture that further explains the process:

The five steps of Quest.

While each peak is designated for a certain length of time, the QUEST program is designed to meet the unique needs of each student. Throughout the program, if a student wants to delay or extend their enrollment, they may do so by working with the QUEST coordinator.

What are the Benefits?

Students who complete the QUEST program:

  • Are better able to articulate their personal strengths
  • Can identify their desired career path
  • Can obtain skills and knowledge needed to be successful in their profession
  • Are better equipped to tackle tough world issues
  • Are uniquely qualified to bring about transformative change

Participants will receive a certificate and acknowledgement gift upon completion of each of the peaks. Students who participate in the QUEST Leadership Program will receive special recognition at the annual Leadership and Service Awards Banquet held at the end of the Spring semester.
