Welcome to the Leadership Studies Program

The Leadership Studies Program is an interdisciplinary program designed for students in all majors, consisting of a 21-credit-hour leadership studies certificate and a 15-credit-hour leadership studies minor.

The program is designed for undergraduate students in all academic disciplines and colleges at Iowa State University who seek to study, understand and apply the principles of leadership in their current activities and, eventually, in their careers.

The Leadership Studies Program also coordinates the Global Leadership Study Abroad and Vermeer International Leadership programs, which are open to all undergraduate students.

Meet with an adviser to learn more about the program or enroll in the certificate or minor.

Get involved with the Leadership Studies Program, even if you are not enrolled in the certificate or minor.

Request a leadership studies faculty member to speak at your class or campus event.


The Leadership Studies Program is coordinated by the Carrie Chapman Catt Center for Women and Politics at Iowa State University.
