A Journey in Leadership
Shoop, Robert J.
Educational Considerations, v37 n1 p2-3 Fall 2009
In 1997, two faculty members at Kansas State University began the process of creating something special and distinctive that never existed before. They clearly understood that they were embarking on a journey that would be exciting, yet not totally within their control. They were passionate about the value of developing a leadership studies undergraduate minor, but they knew that their plans would not work unless they were flexible in the design of the program. The first Introduction to Leadership Concepts course open to the general student body was offered in the spring of 1997. The two founders of the program taught the course. This article discusses the journey of these two faculty members in the creation of the interdisciplinary minor in leadership studies at their university. (Contains 1 endnote.)
