2013 Inquiry Seminars

Leadership for Sustainability

Peter Hovde

"The purpose of Concordia College is to influence the affairs of the world by sending into society thoughtful and informed men and women dedicated to the Christian life." Concordia’s mission statement serves as a foundation and compass for this inquiry seminar. From Aristotle to the present day, we examine the lives of great leaders and the thoughts of great thinkers in order to cultivate students as leaders of the future who—armed with a well-considered philosophy of life and our place in our world which each student will develop in the course—will leave our planet a more just and sustainable place. Students will get a chance to put their philosophies into action and hone their leadership skills as they try to shepherd bills they have written through a simulated legislature. OC
