Leadership Studies Minor


One of the compelling and unique aspects of the Pioneer Leadership Program is its academic minor that students achieve at the end of their 4 years of study.  In a recent study of PLP students, it was reported that they perform at a higher level on the Socially-Responsible Leadership Scale (SRLS) as developed by Dr. Tracy Tyree.  Using the Social Change Model of Leadership Development (Astin & Astin, 1996, HERI), this scale measured PLP students as showing statistically significantly higher average mean scores across all seven constructs when compared to a random sample of students of similar institutions. See an outline of the "Seven C's" of the Social Change Model and additional course information below.
