Spring 2017: President Leahy offers leadership course

A unique course is being offered for the Spring 2017 semester by the department of entrepreneurship, leadership and marketing. It is not necessarily the content of the course that makes it unique, but rather the instructor.

It is a one credit course that is called LDR398, President’s seminar in leadership, and will be taught by President Patrick F. Leahy.

The course is being offered on Mondays from 3 to 5 p.m., and will include a variety of guest speakers to aid the curriculum. The focus is on successful leadership. All Wilkes students are welcome to take the course, regardless of their majors.

It is unknown at this time who these guest speakers will be, but Leahy shared that the course would “provide upperclass students a unique opportunity to interact with some of the top leaders associated with Wilkes.”

“I’d encourage every student, especially seniors and juniors, to consider taking this course to explore challenges and opportunities in leadership,” read an email from Dr. Grace Xiao, chair of the department of entrepreneurship, leadership and marketing to students of the Sidhu school of business.

“I look forward to introducing this special course on leadership next spring,” Leahy said.
