Overview

Students completing the Integrated Pathway in Leadership will be better positioned for the job market to leave Earlham with a clear designation that they possess the marketable skill of leadership that employers seek. The Integrated Program will introduce students to interdisciplinary ways of thinking about leadership, ethics, morality and decision-making, and help them integrate what they are learning in the classroom with their co-curricular activities.
