Chancellor's Capstone Seminar in Leadership

University Capstone Seminar in Leadership—LDR4400 Upperclassmen who demonstrate effective leadership may be selected to the Seminar, which provides opportunities to study leadership, interact with established leaders, and discuss what they have learned with Chancellor Jack Hawkins Jr. and Dr. John Kline who co-teach the course.

Outstanding guest speakers—including corporate leaders, distinguished educational leaders, and leaders from the executive, legislative and judicial branches of state government lecture and lead discussions on such topics as: Ethics, Communication, Time Management, Running an Organization, Building a Team, Reaching Consensus and Leadership in the Global Marketplace. Near the end of the course, each student develops a paper presenting his or her own philosophy of leadership.

In addition, up to 25 members of the class may be selected to enroll for an additional two hours credit in Leadership Field Studies. Each of these students meets weekly with a mentor to discuss readings, shadow the mentor, or attend special functions with them.

Field Studies students go on field trips and meet with CEO's of large complex corporations, general officers commanding large military installations and units, and state government officials including legislators, the Governor and Lt Governor of Alabama.

Comments from students over the past ten years are overwhelmingly positive. Many claim this was the best course and single most important influence in their university career.
