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.

The Puerto Rican Student Association will be hosting an event aimed at deepening our understanding of the political and economical history and current situation of Puerto Rico. Puerto Rico is an island in the Caribbean that has been defined politically by the US government as an unincorporated territory. This talk will address what that means for US-Puerto Rico relations and how this condition affects people in PR and in the mainland US. As part of the educational component of this talk, we will bring in a speaker who specializes in the study of Puerto Rico’s political status and how this political condition affects human rights. The speaker will be fully bilingual and eager to engage the audience in a question and answer session.
This event will be free and open to the Purdue community.
