Leadership Electives

With over 50+ electives to choose from, students beneĀ­fit from the flexibility to craft their unique study and practice of leadership. Leadership electives allow students to explore classes either inside or outside of their college that may also count towards their major! Electives are to provide additional training and practice for students' career aspirations, and allow students to develop and apply leadership philosophy while pursuing personal leadership experiences and professional goals.


Along with faculty, colleagues, and academic partners, Dean-appointed TLI Faculty Liaisons choose electives that facilitate student development of core leadership competencies, and also cater to students' major area of study. Students have the opportunity to frame their major academic coursework through the lens of leadership, intentionally applying what they have learned from their major to demonstrate how they will be a leader in their future career.


Students participating in the Leadership Minor, should select leadership electives with guidance from TLI and the student's college. Below is a list of examples of leadership electives.


Below is not an exhaustive list - more course offerings may be considered. For more information students may submit the Leadership Electives form, for pre-approval.


Reach out to TLI if additional guidance on course availability is needed.
