Leadership Studies Sequence
The Leadership Studies Sequence is a multi-disciplinary program focusing on the nature of leadership and followership. It is coordinated with the co-curricular activities of its sponsoring organization, the Kravis Leadership Institute at Claremont McKenna College (CMC). The sequence is designed for CMC students interested in pursuing a career involving the scholarly study and/or practice of leadership, who feel that an understanding of leadership would be helpful to them in another career, or who have a causal interest in the subject. Completion of the Sequence will be noted on student transcripts.
