All organizations function with a variety of people and personalities. It takes strong people skills and leadership to successfully steer organizations. As an organizational leadership major you’ll hone these skills choosing a focus in a particular area such as business, communication, Christian education, ministry or intercultural studies. You will also gain a strong understanding of leadership through courses in strategy, business law, management and marketing.
So what’s required to be successful in organizational leadership? A willingness to work with and lead people to accomplish organizational goals. Real world experience helps. You’ll also have a chance to join our chapter of The National Society of Leadership Success for great networking opportunities.
“I love that we use our knowledge, time and service to help the success of individuals that society has given up on.”
Yorton Clark, EdD

As an organizational leadership major, you’ll work with Dr. Yorton Clark on a service learning project at Lansing Correctional Facility. Work with soon-to-be-released inmates and lead money management, interviewing and resume training—you’ll gain valuable experience while serving others.
