Add a new course Leadership of Student Affairs (3 crs) SDS Graduate(6xxx) XXX
Prerequisites:    
None
Co-requisites:    
None 
Course Description:
This course is an exploration of leadership on college campuses. As such, it begins by examining conceptual and theoretical concepts and constructs of leadership as well as how student affairs personnel, higher education administrators, and students have developed and enacted notions of leadership. Thus, students will have opportunities to apply what they are learning within authentic leadership contexts. Leadership is viewed through multiple lenses: as an art (especially a performing art), a philosophy, a social science, a lifestyle, and a social contract. Emphasis is given to manifestations of leadership in the higher education setting, which by nature will draw on business, political, sociological, and psychological constructs and approaches. The course is focused in scope on institutional level leadership within university and college systems.
