Winter Classes


HESI 217: Introduction to Student Leadership (General Education: DSSP)  
This course will survey the study and practice of leadership and provide students with a variety of experiences to wrestle with large leadership questions. What is leadership? Who can be a leader? How is leadership an important aspect of understanding self and others? Students will respond to these questions by developing their own leadership philosophies throughout the course of the semester.  Students will explore leadership frameworks through in-class experiential exercises, individual reflection and group work.


HESI 318A: Leadership in Film (ONLINE)
This online course asks students to think about leadership in a new way by finding leadership lessons from film. This course will ask students to watch a number of films (including some documentaries) and connect each of the films to leadership readings and personal experience.


HESI 221: Leadership, Power and Privilege (ONLINE)

This online course will expose students to concepts of power and privilege within collective and inclusive leadership frameworks. Course material will apply diverse learning methods to increase the student’s awareness of power and privilege and how these concepts operate at the individual, institutional, and societal levels to impact our leadership perceptions and behaviors.  Students will be asked to explore the way they perform and understand leadership through critical analysis of social issues, assignments, contemplative practice, and dialogue.  This course will invite students to question their own assumptions about the world in which we live, to acknowledge how their different experiences have shaped them, to be aware of how they perceive others and are perceived by others, and to recognize how these dynamics intersect with the leadership process. 



HESI 418E: Strengths-Based Leadership (ONLINE)
Effective leadership practice through emphasis on strengths development is the goal of this online class.  Using the Gallup Organization's StrengthsFinder Assessment, students will explore their personal strengths and learn how to build strengths-based teams for group leadership. Themes of teamwork, problem-solving, coaching others, and conflict resolution are woven throughout the course.
