Leadership development has a research and scholarly base. Expanding the disciplinary base of leadership knowledge provides a foundation for developing the capacity of individuals, teams and organizations. It is essential that we expand our understanding of:
- leadership philosophy - principles of motivation and leadership approaches
- leadership processes - actions and techniques of leadership
- leadership psychology - human interactions and situational relationships
- organizational leadership - dynamics of change in organizations
Leadership within academic disciplines is equally important. Generating new knowledge is essential for our 21st century global society. The synergy of outstanding faculty, graduate students, and undergraduate student leaders produces scholarship in an atmosphere of innovation, entrepreneurship and inclusivity.
The mentoring relationships created through leadership research programs develop technically competent professionals who understand and value collaborative program-solving, cross-disciplinary thinking, interpersonal communications, and professional ethics.
