  • 1.  Syllabi for Undergraduate Leadership Capstone

    Posted 11-22-2021 18:53
    Hello colleagues,

    In the Spring, I'm scheduled to teach the capstone course within our leadership concentration. Below is a segment of the course description. I am hoping to see what other faculty have done in such a course. If you could share your syllabus with me, it would be greatly appreciated! Thanks for your time!

    "This capstone course integrates and applies leadership knowledge, skills, character, and competencies. The course provides opportunities to think more systematically about leadership and organizations, its application, and the personal competencies needed for leadership success."

    Hi Kevin,
    I taught a similar undergraduate capstone course at Cardinal Stritch University a few years ago, and am attaching that syllabus. Hopefully you will find it useful. As matter of fact, we had a large number of students that term, but instead of splitting the course into two sections, I co-taught that course with a colleague. It ended up being one of the best courses I have ever taught, and a few weeks ago I met with an alumna of the program there, and she said that was her favorite course of her undergraduate degree, partly because of how my colleague and I complemented each other in the course. If you have the opportunity to do something like that, I highly recommend it.
    If you would, kindly share your updated syllabus when you teach, just for my reference.
    Best wishes,
