CIVIC ENGAGEMENT AND LEADERSHIP MINOR (CEL)

Professor James C. Hall, Coordinator
Office: 107 Carmichael

The minor in civic engagement and leadership is jointly managed by New College and the Department of Philosophy and complements efforts by the University's student affairs division to produce outstanding leaders and citizens. The minor is structured around two foundation courses that complement each other by their discreet and respective attention to (a) the ability to reason and the achievement of logical clarity and (b) the opportunity to think, reason, and discuss in a problem-based learning environment with emphasis on systematic reflection. After completing the foundational courses, students build a concentration in international leadership or globalization, Alabama politics and development, human relations, conflict resolution, and organizational leadership, including the for-profit, nonprofit, and nongovernmental sectors.
