Leadership skills are inherently tied to one’s ability to communicate effectively in a variety of situations, including formal presentations, meetings, the media, and informal conversations. Competent use of one’s skills is predicated on a sophisticated understanding of culture, context, process, audience, and principles of rhetoric. The minor in Leadership/Stewardship Communication is designed to enhance the student’s understanding of the relationship between communication and leadership and to develop appropriate skills for enhancing leadership. The minor complements many of the University’s professional and liberal arts programs, especially those that prepare students for leadership roles in specific professions (law, politics, management, media, community services, and so on).
