Minor in Agricultural Leadership

The only constant is change. Leaders create and manage change through interactive processes with people and systems. Today's leadership is less dependent on formal authority and more dependent on relationships, trust, and power; thus- anyone has the potential to lead. Leadership can be learned. The minor in Agricultural Leadership empowers students to become leaders and change agents by developing key strategic planning, communications, coaching, and evaluation skills to facilitate individual and team growth.


A student must complete 15 credits of coursework related to leadership and personal development from the list of approved courses. The coordinator of the minor must approve courses not on the list. With appropriate approval, an internship with a focus upon providing the student practical experiences in leadership and supervisory roles can be counted toward the 15 credit requirement.
