Academic Opportunities in Leadership Studies

The Leadership & Community Service-Learning office partners with the Department of Counseling, Higher Education, & Special Education in the College of Education to offer academic courses on leadership theory and practice from a variety of disciplinary and cultural lenses. Students are welcome to just take a single course, or to apply to the Leadership Studies Program, which offers both a minor and certificate. Any undergraduate student regardless of major or home college is welcome to take a course and/or apply to the program. 

Students in the Leadership Studies Program explore leadership theory and practice from a variety of social, historic, and disciplinary lenses and are challenged to think about leadership critically and broadly, beyond dominant narratives of position and authority. Students are also encouraged to identify a working philosophy of leadership that can advance their thinking around ethics, civic engagement, and the importance of working within diverse and multicultural environments.

Please visit the Leadership Studies Program website to learn about program requirements, course offerings, applications, and more. Questions can be directed to
