This course will enhance student understanding of the importance of serving the people who have a connection to and are in turn affected by institutions. Effective leadership and attributes of integrity, trustworthiness and authenticity will be examined in light of course readings. Values-based leadership will be explored as students wil develop their moral compass in life and leadership. Students will begin to clarify their own understanding of servant leadership, and their own actions and practices as servant leaders. All of this is grounded in knowledge (literature), reflection and inquiry (discussion board), and practices (papers and dialogue). Students will emerge with a better understanding of themselves as servant leaders and better able to influence organizations through their own practices of servant leadership.
