We are committed to preparing students who have the skills, knowledge and experience to function effectively in and change for the better our complex, shared-power world.  In addition to learning in interdisciplinary University of Minnesota programs and coursework, our students contribute to and consult on projects for public, private and non-profit organizations outside the University. We are also committed to learning from and with leaders and leadership initiatives outside the University -- from other organizations, and from diverse communities, cultures and countries.
