Critical Perspectives is a for-credit course designed to apply a critical lens to the ways in which we have been socialized to think and understand leadership and traditional leadership theory.
The course is built on the following assumptions of leadership:
- Leadership is a process;
- Everyone has the capacity to be a leader;
- Leadership is not positional;
- The historical representation of leaderrship and subsequent development of leadership theory is rooted in oppression;
- In order to create liberative leadership education opportunities, we must center the voices of marginalized communities in our theory, pedagogy, and design.
