Course Materials
Required Text
Leadership: Enhancing the Lessons of Experience, Hughes, McGraw-Hill/Irwin, 6th edition, 2009

Course Goals
Upon successful completion of this course; students will have gained skills in leadership along with team development. Students will also learn how to apply theory and research to their real-life experiences.

Course Policies
Material will be presented primarily in the form of lectures, reading assignments from the text, and occasionally films. Lecture will cover the points to be learned and will direct your study from the text, however some material will be presented in class that is not in the text. Thus, you should attend class, pay attention while there, and take notes over the material. You should plan on 2 hours of study outside of class for every hour in lecture. The material in the latter part of the course will be based upon material presented in the first part of the course, therefore you will have to commit the material to long term memory. In addition, the final exam is comprehensive.

Grading

Your grade will be determined based upon the total points earned on examinations, quizzes, and a term paper (750 possible points for the semester). There is no provision for doing extra or outside work to improve your grade.

A = 90.0% to 100%
B = 80.0% to 89.9%
C = 70.0% to 79.9%
D = 60.0% to 69.9%
F < 60.0%

Examinations

Three 1-hour examinations plus a final are scheduled for the semester (see class schedule). the final examination is comprehensive. Each 1-hour examination is worth 100 points. The final examination is worth 200 points, 100 points over material since the last test and 100 points over material from the entire semester. This yields 500 possible points on the examinations. If you have to miss an examination for whatever reason, you can take a make-up exam that will be given the last week of class. The make-up exam will not be the same test as that taken by the rest of the class.

Quizzes

There will be 10-point quizzes given at various times throughout the semester. These will be announced the class before the quiz and will most likely be on Fridays. The quizzes will cover the previous lectures. You can drop your two lowest scores on the quizzes. No make-ups will be given for any reason; if you miss a quiz then you drop that score. The total points on the quizzes will equal 100 points.

Making Up Missed Work

Absolutely no make-up quizzes are available for unexcused absences. If you miss a quiz without having made prior arrangement with the professor you will get a zero regardless of the situation.
Make-ups may occasionally be arranged in the most extreme circumstances and the professor's decision about what constitutes an extreme circumstance is final.

Honor Code

The honor code is strictly enforced in this course. All aspects of students' work are subject to the provisions of the code and suspected violations will be promptly reported to the honor system for adjudication.
Such violations include, but are not limited to

  • requesting or providing assistance on quizzes
  • use of class notes, books or other resources while completing quizzes
  • participating in work-for-hire arrangements
  • use of commercially produced notes or class aids

How to Succeed

Want to do well in this class?
It's easy and you already know how; attend class regularly; complete the reading assignment before you come to class; take thorough class notes; get the name, phone number and e-mail address of a classmate who will share his or her notes with you if you have to miss class. Check the schedule and discussion area frequently for updates.
If you need help from the graduate assistants or the professor ask for it immediately---if you wait it will be too late!
