LPS 5053 - Ethical Leadership (3)

This course reviews a number of huge challenges to ethical leadership in the twenty-first century and emphasizes that the need for global ethical leadership is not merely a desirable option, but rather - and quite literally - a matter of survival. The current crises and those in the recent past reveal huge, and in some cases criminal, failures of both ethics and leadership in our current way of dealing with multi-cultural and global challenges.  The future of our city and our nation will require openness, cooperation and co-creation between people with very different world-views and from very different cultures. Through the presentation of research, class discussions, class readings, guest speakers, debates, and field trips within the community, the students will move forward in their understanding of key theoretical and practical matters in leadership, global ethics, and civic responsibility.
