The new leadership studies minor is a collaboration between the Division of Student Life’s Center for Leadership and Service and the Educational Leadership and Policy Studies Department in the College of Education, Health, and Human Sciences.
The minor will prepare students to serve confidently, collaboratively, and ethically in formal and informal leadership roles in campus, local, national, and global contexts. Students will grow their knowledge and skills in critical areas, including group dynamics, ethics, conflict management, vision casting, values clarification, social justice, communication, and mentorship, all while learning to be more adaptable to other cultures and viewpoints.
Students will take 12 hours of applied leadership education and will engage in educational activities both inside and outside the classroom. Students also will perform a minimum of 60 applied experience hours where they will experience leadership in a campus or community setting.
