The Department of Strategic Communication offers a minor in leadership to provide the theoretical background, historical contexts, and core competencies needed to become effective leaders and team members in a variety of fields and professions.
Leadership is a communication and relational process, not a position. Leadership requires responsible, thoughtful reflection and action from all levels of society. This approach requires competencies in self-awareness, team skills, ethical decision-making, as well as the ability to generate a vision and lead with, through, and for others to bring about positive change.
