The Minor in Leadership Studies promotes college student leadership development by educating undergraduate students for and about leadership in a complex world. The goal of the Minor is to prepare students to serve effectively in formal and informal leadership roles in campus, local, national, and global contexts. The Minor also encourages students to identify a working philosophy of leadership that can advance students’ thinking around ethics, civic engagement, and the importance of working within diverse and multicultural environments.
Service-learning combines community service with structured opportunities for learning. Students achieve specific learning objectives, engage in active learning, integrate theory with practice, and deepen understanding of the complex issues that underlie social problems.
