Leadership Studies Minor

Leadership Studies Minor Overview

The KU Leadership Studies Minor (LSM) believes that leadership is a process, not an outcome. Students who want to make progress on issues they care about in their personal, community, and professional lives can study the processes of leadership in an interdisciplinary minor, housed in the Communication Studies Department.  The KU Leadership Studies Minor (LSM) provides a powerful experiential learning process by integrating leadership ideas explored in the classroom with extensive fieldwork. The 18-credit hour minor is best suited for students engaged in co-curricular leadership activities who want to illuminate what they experience with knowledge gained from investigating leadership principles in breadth and depth. The LSM will accept a limited number of new students each semester as the Minor involves small seminar classes and more than 150 hours of leadership experiences in the field. 

For more about the program, Leadership Minor students created this informational video.

The rest of the squad is currently competing at Wichita State, where six teams cleared to outrounds and five are still competing this morning in the sweet sixteen.

KU welcomes President Obama Jan. 22, 2015, was a historic day on the Hill: President Barack Obama visited the University of Kansas campus (http://bit.ly/POTUSatKU), the first sitting president to do so in a century. More than 7,000 people — including many students and faculty who had spent hours in line to get tickets for the event — packed inside KU’s Anschutz Sports Pavilion to hear the president speak. Welcomed by Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little with “Barack Chalk, Jayhawk!” Obama told the gathering “I’m a Kansas guy,” because his mother was from Wichita and grandparents were from Augusta and El Dorado. In his 35-minute talk, the president discussed themes (see official White House transcript http://1.usa.gov/1yMWJqy) from his 2015 State of the Union address, including his goal to lower the cost of attending college.
