Livingston College's Minor in Organizational Leadership: A Theoretical Framework for Leadership Education in the Context of an Undergraduate Curriculum.
Hyndman, Arnold G.; Ashbaugh, Anne
Livingston College, Rutgers University, Piscataway, New Jersey, offers a minor in organizational leadership. The university has a body of courses that are fundamental to leadership instruction. The minor gathers those courses into a curriculum that provides the expertise students need to assume a leading role in an organization. Most of the course options for the theoretical component of the minor fulfill Livingston's area requirements and count for departmental credit. Because it regroups existing courses, the program maximizes the benefits of those courses. The theoretical courses are supplemented by a series of extracurricular programs that give students the opportunity to meet with their cohorts and apply their knowledge of organizational leadership. In all, the minor consists of 21 credits divided into 2 foundation courses, 3 theory courses, and 3 applications. A presentation outline describes the institutional framework of the minor program and emphasizes "Logic, Reasoning, and Persuasion" and "Introduction to Organizational Leadership" as key courses in the minor program. The final section of the outline provides a model approach to the development of a leadership education program, listing the steps that should be taken. (SLD)
