The purpose of this course is to encourage students to carefully analyze their responsibilities and commitments in the context of leadership for the common good and for purposeful change. Students will come to understand the concept of relational leadership and how it differs from traditional leadership theories. The course includes the study of leadership as well as the application of leadership theories, concepts, and skills. Students will also develop their own leadership potential through the completion of personal and leadership self-assessments, values exploration, and leadership skill applications through course activities.

The Impact Leadership Village living and learning community provides students interested in leadership with the opportunity to live together, build community, and learn about leadership by participating in residence hall sponsored leadership programs and experiences.  The SLC 101 course provides the Impact Leadership Village with an academic component leading to a seamless living and learning experience.  Students will formally explore leadership philosophies in a classroom setting with all members of the community present and engaged.  They will be guided by an instructor who can assist students in deepening their leadership knowledge.  Students will accomplish project work thus learning together while building community. Classroom topics and learning will be reinforced through residence hall Village leadership opportunities as well as active and passive program offerings.
