Sharpening the skills and shaping the consciences of future leaders...
The Perfect Complement to Any Major
Like leadership itself, the Leadership Development Minor is interdisciplinary in nature, with students completing courses from three academic areas. With 12 of the required 18 credits also fulfilling requirements in the John Carroll core curriculum, the minor has the flexibility to align with the needs and interests of individual students from all different majors.
The Leadership Development Minor provides students with opportunities to stretch their leadership capacities through a series of courses that will force them to discern about and recognize their individual approaches to leadership, teach them about the affects that leaders can have on justice issues, and sharpen the skills needed to be an effective leader, including communication and making decisions.
Do we simply teach leadership? No. Rather, the faculty in the Leadership Development Minor prepare students to be effective when opportunities arise to have an impact and create change.
The Leadership Development Minor helps our university live its mission of inspiring individuals to excel in learning, leadership, and service in the region and in the world.
