The development of an undergraduate course that would examine a series of questions centered on leadership.

The new humanities course, The Art of Leadership will explore several enduring and exciting questions: Who is a good leader? What does a good leader do? How does one prepare to lead? What ought to be the aim of good leaders? What is human nature, and does it affect leadership? Is leadership an art or a science? What is practical wisdom, and how does one obtain it? Are leaders constrained by any boundaries or obligations? Is virtue essential to good leadership? Is vice ever necessary? How should one lead in a situation that is less than best? Students mastering course material will be better able to: read and interpret great works; analyze and critique texts, ideas, and arguments; approach intellectual inquiry in an integrative and pre-disciplinary fashion; compare and contrast great works from different cultures and eras; and develop skills essential a liberal arts education: critical thinking, analytical reasoning, problem solving, and effective communication.
