Ursuline Leadership Program

The Ursuline Leadership Program is an exciting opportunity for graduates of Ursuline high schools to be a part of our CNR Community. As a student with previous experience in an Ursuline educational environment, you will enrich our College Community with that experience and commitment to faith. Ursuline leaders receive a special grant for housing in campus residence halls. Students from Ursuline high schools that have been accepted to The College of New Rochelle are eligible to apply for the Ursuline Leadership Program.

These grant recipients will serve as peer educators and leaders, working with the Office of Campus Ministry to enhance the Catholic and Ursuline mission of the College. This program requires on-campus residency and the award of $8,000 is applied towards housing costs.

Ursuline Leaders work with Campus Ministry in four key areas:


Engage peers to take part in the various community service opportunities at CNR. Assist in coordinating service trips, Midnight Runs to New York City, and the College's annual Community Service Day.


Promote the social justice teachings of the Church by facilitating programs about hunger, homelessness, global health, economic justice, and human trafficking.


Contribute to CNR's Holy Family Chapel faith community by serving as a sacristan minister coordinator, cantor, chapel choir member, musician, or minister of hospitality.


Work with the Campus Ministry team to develop unique and engaging retreat programs that help peers reflect on and discern their relationship with God.
