About the Minor in Community Leadership

Requirements for the New Community Leadership Minor


The Minor is comprised of 12 credit hours of classroom coursework and co-curricular learning documented on the Experiential Learning Transcript (ELT). Coursework is as follows:  


Course #1
LDR 3003: Introduction to Leadership (3 Credit Hours); this course is open to all students except first year students in their first term. Students are not required to declare the Minor in Community Leadership prior to taking this course. To allow sufficient time to earn the minor, we recommend that this course be taken no later than one's Junior year.  Though this course is open to Seniors, they are advised that they may lack sufficient time to attain the minor.  Following completion of LDR 3003 and throughout the remainder of their time at UNF, students track their on-campus and off-campus co-curricular leadership experiential learning on the Experiential Learning Transcript (ELT) , accessed through myWings. Prior to posting to the ELT, students are required to attend a one-hour workshop about the ELT. These workshops are regularly offered by the Taylor Leadership Institute and are listed under Upcoming Events  


Course #2
One Primary Leadership Elective (3 Credit Hours) must be taken from a wheel of three Leadership courses;  

 LDR 3240: Inter-Group Dialogue Among Diverse Populations; OR 

 LDR 3320: Collaborative Leadership; OR 

 SOP 3515: Fundamentals of Conflict Transformation  


Course #3
One Inter-Disciplinary Leadership Elective (3 Credit Hours) can be any of some 80 courses that have been certified by the Taylor Leadership Institute across all five colleges at UNF. Click here for listing of Interdisciplinary Leadership Electives  


Course #4
LDR 4263: Practicum in Community Leadership
(3 Credit Hours); this course is generally taken in the student's final term just prior to graduation; the Practicum course considers leadership learnings gleaned from students' current and prior co-curricular activities, retroactive to their enrollment at UNF, including on-campus and off-campus activities documented on the ELT. These leadership learning activities include employment, volunteerism, internships, study abroad experiences, and other forms of community-based engagement. During the practicum course, students meet in class every two weeks in the Senior Leadership Seminar as they reflect on their experiential learning about leadership. They finalize their ELT entries and prepare for their Leadership Capstone Presentation.
