The interdisciplinary Leadership Studies Program provides working professionals the opportunity to develop personal, academic, and professional competency for expanded leadership roles. The program focuses on organizational change and especially the “people-related” issues resulting from such changes. The program is based on the Jesuit traditions of educating the whole person, the promotion of justice, and the reconciliation of people with one another (Ely, 1980).
The conceptual framework provides a continuation of the Doctoral Program as begun in 1980, and as it evolves, to better meet the needs of our present and future students and the people they serve. The following goals guide our ongoing program renewal efforts, and are based on research-based qualities of leadership which form the basis of a learning community within our department.
