Interdisciplinary Minor in Leadership

The interdisciplinary minor in Leadership seeks to enhance the skills, vision, and moral code of students drawn to leadership. The minor will challenge students to critically analyze and build on their ability to act as knowledgeable, ethical, and caring leaders for the diverse worlds in which we live including business, political civic and community service and engagement. The mission of the minor is fulfilled by the achievement of three goals:

First, the students are introduced to basic theories, skills and practices of leadership.

Second, students examine how leadership theories and practices are applied to the public and nonprofit sectors to enhance their effectiveness as citizens in society.

Third, students explore the relationship between leadership and the private sector with an emphasis of leadership in management situations.
