- ACADEMIC VISION
To provide a vibrant and rigorous curriculum that equips students (our minors as well as others who take our courses) to lead faithfully and effectively in different cultural and organizational settings, and within their chosen vocation.
- LEADERSHIP MINOR OBJECTIVE
To help students discover and develop their leadership abilities, grow as servant leaders, become trusted advisors and understand the role of leadership in different cultural and organizational settings.
- GUIDING PRINCIPLES
- The Leadership Minor is relevant to students within every major on campus. There are leaders within every field of work, across diverse cultural and organizational settings. The way our minor is structured, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to apply what you are learning to vocation-relevant scenarios.
- Academic rigor and practical relevance are intertwined. The minor provides rigorous academic content from the most trusted and relevant scholastic sources — those used in highly rated undergraduate and graduate-level curricula and in cutting edge professional training programs. In tandem, the program provides ample experiential and practical opportunities to apply your leadership knowledge. Courses taught by a blend of academic experts, highly experienced practitioners and those with a blend of both backgrounds.
- Rigorous study of leadership provides an unshakable foundation. The art and skill of leadership may, to some, seem best left to intuition. Indeed, there continues to be a debate about whether good leaders are “born or made.” Our principle is something different: intentional study of leadership will help you build a foundation of knowledge that experiential opportunities can build upon. The better this foundation, the more reliable and secure the practical lessons to follow will prove to be.
