Ethical Leadership Minor
The ethical leadership minor prepares you to act and lead with justice and compassion in a diverse and uncertain world.
In the ethical leadership minor's discussion-centered classes, you will develop a better sense of yourself and your values. You’ll explore what sort of person you want to be, what it means to be an ethical person and leader, and what keeps us from doing the right thing. You’ll talk to and study people whose views and experiences differ from your own, and you’ll learn from them, while practicing standing up for what you believe. You’ll explore practical ways to improve yourself and the world, and you’ll put your best ideas into action.
Through elective courses, you will be able to focus on social justice, studying racism and political activism. You can explore the role of religion in ethics, studying Buddhism or the social teachings of the Catholic church. You may also connect the minor with your major, e.g., by studying biomedical or environmental ethics.
Ethical leadership minors are encouraged to supplement work in the minor with participation in the Anchor leadership program.
