Engaged CST Leadership Seminar: Sustainability

Social Concerns Seminar

The Engaged CST Leadership Seminar is a course designed to take CST values and ethics and apply them to concrete practices and postures of leadership in various post-graduate fields of work. Reserved for upperclassmen, this Engaged Leadership Seminar is focused on sustainability. (Moving forward we envision iterations of this seminar focused on other career fields; business, healthcare, etc.)

This course is focused on collaborative group projects and learning experiences that will help students sharpen their capacity to lead in their field from a deep well of CST animated values. It will help students move from learning about how CST intersects and informs their field to the work of learning how to then lead out in that field in a manner that uplifts a commitment to justice as informed by CST.
