Leadership Studies Minor

2014-15 Undergraduate Academic Catalog

Curriculum Changes

In forming and implementing the Leadership Studies minor in 2005-2006, the Leadership Advisory Board sought to create a program that provided the best and most well-rounded academic leadership experience for students. In Spring 2010, and after being in place for five years, a curriculum review was undertaken. Based on the Board’s and students’ assessments of the program and courses, modifications were made and formally approved by Elon’s Curriculum Committee.  

These changes are fairly minor, but did involve some course deletions, additions, and changes; and all were implemented because it was felt that they would strengthen students’ experiences. Please read Transitions Implications for Current Minors to see how these changes may specifically relate to you if you are a minor.
