What You'll Learn

The Leadership Studies minor complements any major and is designed to create a framework of opportunity for you to experience intersections between your academic training and the principles and practices of effective leadership.

Through a series of challenging and reflective experiences, we will encourage you to identify your own areas of competence and strength and to put them to work in your discipline of choice. You will develop the self-determination that will prepare you to emerge from your College experience with a desire to pursue and sustain social change within any context or community that presents itself.

Vision Statement: Cultivating Strong Leaders: One Voice at a Time.

Mission Statement: To create a framework of opportunity for all students to experience intersections between their academic training and the principles and practices of effective leadership.
