New Electives!

We're offering two, brand-new leadership electives next year!

A course on Emotional Intelligence will be offered in January and July next year. Discover how tapping into this skillset can help you make better decisions and manage conflict.

In November, learn about Women in Leadership. We will unpack popular conceptions of women's leadership and examine what unique elements women (and men) bring – or don't bring – to leadership.
