LEADERSHIP CORE

 The Leadership Core consists of 39 credit hours of coursework (14 courses plus a capstone course[s] in a student’s major[s]). Leadership Core (LDRS) coursework replaced earlier General Educational Requirements and was the product of a deliberate effort taken to strengthen and streamline the quality of required courses outside a student’s major program of study. Since adopting the Leadership Core,William Penn University has received recognition by the John Templeton Foundation.

Courses designated at the 100 or 200 level should be taken during the student’s first two years while those designated at the 300 level should be taken during the last two years. Some courses also have prerequisites. Transfer students with an associate degree are required only to take Quaker Values and Contemporary Leadership to fulfill the Leadership Core requirement.
