We need a new generation of leaders and game-changers.  The notion of leadership that once resonated with greatness no longer inspires new dreams, compelling visions, and revolutionary actions.  The unethical behavior, self-indulging decisions, and ego-driven conduct of many contemporary leaders have eroded society’s trust in corporate, public, and political leaders.  There is an urgent need for principled and purpose-driven leaders who are driven by a set of universal virtues, a strong moral compass, and a deep desire to serve a global society and a sustainable world.  This course teaches students critical concepts and skills to examine their passion and purpose, develop vision, mission, values, and a plan of action to serve their communities.  This course provides students with the opportunity to reflect, collaborate, and learn through individual and group activities including self-evaluation, cases, discussions and seminars, and team projects.

This class will be entirely online, with some class meetings conducted via Zoom and learning activities conducted through Canvas. The faculty will offer alternative assignments if conditions or illness prevent students from accessing our synchronous meetings, which will allow students to earn comparable credit.
