Escape the Ordinary

Phi Theta Kappa’s Leadership Development Studies curriculum delivers a diverse, interdisciplinary approach to leadership instruction. Grounded in the humanities, the curriculum is accessible and relevant to all.

Our curriculum combines the study of great leaders portrayed in the humanities by writers, historians and film-makers from ancient times to modern-day. These carefully chosen works show the passion, engagement, skill and philosophies of many types of leaders, and the curriculum encourages personal reflection and the development of a personal philosophy of leadership.

The W.K. Kellogg Foundation recognized Phi Theta Kappa’s Leadership Development Studies curriculum as one of only eight Exemplary Leadership Development Programs in Higher Education. Selection was based upon effectiveness, philosophy, sustainability, comprehensiveness and targeted training, development and support for program facilitators.

Certification is a pre-requisite for anyone who desires to facilitate leadership development using the Phi Theta Kappa curriculum. Candidates for instructor certification often include student affairs professionals, honors program directors and faculty, college faculty from all disciplines, Phi Theta Kappa advisors, college administrators and leadership professionals.

International Facilitators conduct several instructor certification seminars during the year across the United States. Learn more about upcoming certification seminars.
