Leadership, Ethics and Values Faculty
The Leadership, Ethics and Values program is committed to advancing the college mission statement of creating “curious, engaged, ethical, and purposeful citizens and leaders in local, national and global contexts.”
The academic component of the LEV program is an integral part of North Central College’s institutional commitment to the development of ethical leaders. The overall goal of the courses is to help students understand the many aspects of the leadership process, and to help them develop the skills and qualities necessary for responsible leadership.
The Leadership, Ethics and Values program offers three curricular programs. Our concentrations combine a cluster of courses with co-curricular and experiential activities to provide students with a unique career enhancing credential. Our interdisciplinary academic minors assemble a more robust set of courses into one of three distinctive courses of study. Finally, our Integrated Five-Year B.A. or B.S./M.L.D. option allows students to complete both a bachelor’s degree in any of our undergraduate disciplines and a master’s degree in leadership studies in just five years. A description of the innovative integrated five-year B.A./M.L.D. program can be found in the Integrated Five-Year Bachelor’s/Master’s Programs section of this catalog.
