UnSt 242 Leading Social Change

The Leading Social Change cluster explores how to create change in society through everyday acts of leadership. Students will explore elements of leadership such as identity, politics, and culture, and apply this knowledge to a range of social issues in a variety of social contexts where individual or community leadership is required. Through discussion of the implicit and explicit values that guide leaders, and the exploration of various sociocultural contexts and issues, the cluster recognizes that everyone possesses the capacity for leadership. The cluster is ideal both for students who are interested in learning more about how leaders affect the world and who seek to explore leadership and develop their own leadership skills.
