    We learn about leadership by studying the great leaders of the past. Imagine studying leadership from the very place where some of the greatest historical leaders exercised their leadership—the Battlefield at Gettysburg. Visit this hallowed ground where Abraham Lincoln delivered his Gettysburg Address. Attend classroom sessions in the very building where Lincoln stayed the night before the Gettysburg Address and actually completed his Gettysburg Address—The David Wills House. Visit Little Round Top and other key battlefield locations, where pivotal leadership by courageous leaders changed the course of this three-day battle in July of 1863. This is part of what you will experience in this course, but this course is not a history lesson nor is it a lesson on military strategy. Rather, this course focuses squarely on leadership, followership and organizational effectiveness. Guided by a Purdue Leadership Professor and in partnership with the Lincoln Leadership Institute at Gettysburg, students will learn theories of leadership, apply them to case studies, and develop their skills as a leader through a combination of distance-based and experiential learning. Sessions apply to leading organizations and performing in a rapidly changing, stressful environment, with limited information and limited resources—challenges that were present in 1863 and that are ubiquitous in most organizations today.

    Join us for a transformational leadership journey that will improve your leadership acumen and be remembered for the rest of your life.
