Leadership Studies Minor

The Leadership Studies minor is based on the concept that underlies the Elon Experiences and is at the heart of an Elon education -- active and engaged learning. The study of leadership must be an effective marriage of content and process; this minor is designed to provide both. It is built on the strength and expertise of Elon’s faculty, seeking to offer courses from a variety of disciplines that promote the understanding that leadership is working with people to move together toward the attainment of a vision informed by the common good.

Completion of an advising appointment and a short information sheet are required to declare a Leadership Studies minor (in addition to completing the declaration of major/minor form in Academic Advising). Please inquire at the Center for Leadership, Moseley 224, 278-LEAD.
