Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Undergraduate & Graduate Academic Programs

The Organization and Leadership (O&L) program is committed to providing students with knowledge, skills, and tools necessary to become leaders in educational settings and community contexts. We believe in leaders who are motivated to transform themselves, organizations and institutions by developing skills to a) understand and critique systems of power and b) reimagine, create, and lead organizations based on principles of justice, democratic participation, and service. 

Students wishing to minor in O&L should have experience in a professional leadership role and be willing to take O&L foundational courses. Please reach out to the department chair and arrange a meeting to review the program requirements.

Program Learning Outcomes

  • Develop a nuanced and integrative understanding of traditional leadership theories and critical perspectives
  • Develop an understanding of organizations as complex, social and bureaucratic systems within a larger political environment
  • Produce knowledge and interventions that build the capacity within schools, communities, and organizations to work towards justice
