Kimberly Post talks about why an interdisciplinary degree in Leadership is so valuable:

“Leadership for Sustainable Communities is a degree that prepares you to be a leader at any level and in any capacity, with an emphasis on making a positive difference in the world. Throughout the program you are immersed in local issues and develop a deeper understanding of community concerns and how people are leading the way to address them. This focus on community better prepares you for meeting the current and future needs of your own communities.”
