Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Academic Programs

Leadership is a subject of vital importance.  It is a topic that cuts across time and place, as well as traditional disciplinary boundaries.  As such, leadership is extremely relevant in a broad range of contexts from local and global politics to business, ethics, and education.  This minor offers students a conceptual understanding of leadership studies that, when combined with co-curricula and experiential components, provides them with an increased awareness of their role in a world of multi-layered change.
