From bonding over Harry Potter houses to deep convos about our biggest fears, INTD 301 felt more like a leadership development opportunity than a course. Reply is Name a more badass group of people. I'll wait. Final comment is Missing this already. Main tagline is Where will leadership take you?
INT D 301 is now open for UAlberta students interested in leadership!

Foundations of Leadership (INT D 301)

What does it take to lead? Foundations of Leadership will cover the theory and practice of leadership through case studies, innovative assignments and experiential activities. Work alongside students from across campus to explore social issues through interdisciplinary knowledge.

We offer this class each Fall and Winter. See the next available section and enrol on Beartracks!

Leadership for Social Innovation (INT D 306)

Have you ever wondered what a wicked problem is? Are you interested in finding creative, ecological approaches to making a difference? Wondering where to start? In this course, you will explore the concept of wicked problems, and research socially innovative ideas to solve them using an approach called ecological leadership. You will hear from those who have been effective in turning a seed of an idea into an innovative solution. You will learn these skills: how to research an innovative idea, develop an effective proposal, and pitch that idea.  

INT D 306 is a co-requisite with INT D 301. Visit Beartracks for course availability.
