Leadership at LC
Tomorrow needs leaders.
Leaders who will be prepared for a fast-paced, constantly-changing environment. Leaders who, above all, possess the critical and logical thinking skills that will make them adaptable, flexible, and effective.
At LC, we are equipping students to lead – and they don’t wait until graduation to start doing it.
Our students make a difference today, on campus and in the community.
Leadership Studies Minor
Pair the leadership studies minor with any major, and you’ve got a leg up in your field of study. You’ll be prepared for a leadership position in any number of organizations. The 18-hour program is interdisciplinary and experiential, combining theory and practical experience.
Outdoor Leadership Program
The Outdoor Leadership Program develops leadership skills through indoor and outdoor workshops and adventure programming. It’s a lot of fun.

The endowment provides funding for activities that foster leadership among high school and college students.
The conference is open to all faculty, students, and staff at LC and surrounding colleges for a day of learning about leadership.
