Pursue an Honors minor

The IUPUI Honors College offers two minors that can enhance and complement any major. You must pursue the Honors version of the minor, or complete an Honors contract for each non-Honors course and submit it to the IUPUI Honors College for approval.

Minor in Leadership

The Honors Minor in Leadership is a 15 credit minor that focuses on the five leadership principles.

Foundations of Leadership 
The principles of leadership in organizational settings, with a focus on analyzing the individual, work team, and macro-level environments.

Ethical, Social, and Political Components to Leadership
Decision making in leadership that involves ethical, social, or political considerations. Emphasis is placed on understanding the leader's role in identifying, communicating, and analyzing leadership issues, decisions, and consequences.

Diversity, Global, and Community Leadership
An understanding of and appreciation for leadership exhibited in a variety of diverse contexts. Particular emphasis is placed on the local and global interconnectedness of various leadership issues.

Theoretical and Practical Aspects of Leadership
The strategic nature of leadership, with an emphasis on integration, application, and the translation of leadership theory into practice.

Honors RISE Experience in Leadership
Research, International, Service, or Experiential learning with a specific focus on leadership.

Students may pursue this minor if they:

  • Are enrolled full time at IUPUI
  • Have a 3.5 cumulative GPA from IUPUI
  • Have the ability to complete the minor along with other school and program requirements

Once approved, students must take one course related to each leadership principle in order to complete the minor. Because this is an Honors minor, students are expected to take the Honors section of available courses, or complete an Honors contract for other sections. Students are expected to maintain a B average (3.0) in all courses, as well as maintain a B average overall.
