Leadership Minor


The undergraduate leadership minor capitalizes upon the university’s intention to develop disciples and scholars who seek to advance the work of God in the world. This minor does so by encouraging students to pursue excellence in their chosen major while also seeking proficiency as strengths-driven leaders. Courses are thoughtful, challenging, and relationally focused while providing opportunities for reflection, conversation, and research.

Students in the minor learn about whole-person development, leadership and virtue, the role of personal strengths and skills in good leadership, and how to lead as agents of change. Disciplined self-leadership, combined with the knowledge of how to facilitate effective collaboration, make leadership minor graduates an asset to any context in which they may serve. Even as they are encouraged toward life-long development (both as persons and leaders), students have the opportunity to create, articulate, and practice their own philosophy of Christian leadership.
