Brain Leadership Studies Minor

The David Brain Minor in Leadership Studies is designed to educate people for and about leadership. The multi-disciplinary minor in leadership studies, grounded firmly in the liberal arts, provides students with a rigorous course of study. The David Brain Leadership Program views leadership as a form of stewardship. Accordingly, it assumes that the obligations of leadership fall to every citizen of the world; thus all individuals can assume leadership in one way or another. In doing so, the program aims to make a difference both in lives of Baldwin Wallace students and in the lives of those they touch.

The leadership minor gives students an academic grounding in leadership skills; enhances critical thinking, promotes strategies to set goals and develop strategies to achieve them, provides a mechanism to make carefully considered and ethical decisions, and facilitates societal change. The program seeks to develop the citizen leader, one who puts others first and who serves humanity in an ethical and uplifting way.
