Gannon Scholars

The Gannon Scholars Leadership Program is a four-year progressive program that engages students in the development of leadership, service and scholarship. We provide opportunities for leaders to investigate and analyze areas of concern in our suffering world in order to creatively design and apply workable solutions to build a more just social world order. Working collaboratively within the University and with global and local partners, we promote an innovative and interdisciplinary approach to shape women leaders for the 21st Century.

The Gannon Scholars Program was established in 1984 in honor of Sister Ann Ida Gannon, BVM, an outstanding president of Mundelein College. Sister Ann Ida Gannon was a renowned leader in public, nonprofit, profit and ecclesial sectors of our world. The Gannon Scholars Program has developed a national reputation for successful programming and services that enhance and strengthen leadership of women.
