Leadership Minor

A leader needs a wide variety of knowledge, skills and dispositions to be effective. These attributes may be innate, or they may be learned and absorbed through observation. A wide variety of classroom and practical experience will assist students who pursue the leadership minor to assimilate and develop these qualities.

The minor requires specialized leadership classes, weekly cohort meetings and field trips to see leadership in action behind the scenes. “The minor also requires an internship,” said Linda Becker, vice president for student services and administrative director of the program. “We want to make sure all students have a chance to exercise their abilities and to connect and learn from other leaders before they graduate.”

This nineteen-hour minor is designated to be completed within four years plus one summer. Some of the required courses fulfill LEAD requirements for general education or requirements within a student's major discipline.
