Minor in Leadership Studies

The minor in Leadership Studies will offer a flexible but in-depth study of leadership and its effects on society. The minor is designed to provide an understanding of leadership theory and will improve student leadership styles to develop competencies in the domain of leadership through lenses of social justice, ethical leadership, and community engagement (SEC). Further, the minor will serve as a foundation for building a community of scholars whose work examines the intersection of SEC in the practice of interdisciplinary leadership. The primary educational objectives of the proposed minor are to introduce, nurture and develop leaders who possess deep and broad knowledge of the discipline while considering concepts of social justice, ethical leadership, and community engagement as it applies to their primary area of study.
