This seminar, designed for Cowell and Stevenson students, will equip students with the fundamental concepts, methods and critical thinking skills required to lead in a diverse society.  Students will acquire the foundational knowledge and skills related to leadership, collaboration, and identity theories with particular emphasis on leading diverse teams. One overarching goal of this course is to deepen students’ understanding of leadership through critical explorations of identity in UC Santa Cruz, local, and national communities. Students will leave this class able to articulate how their identities shape their leadership style and how to effectively collaborate with diverse teams of people to enact social change.
