The Department of Organizational Leadership, Policy, and Development (OLPD) offers two Bachelor of Science degrees within the College of Education and Human Development. These undergraduate programs have 47 faculty who teach and serve over 500 majors with a focus on educational and organizational change in local, national, and international contexts. Their research, teaching, and outreach reflect a commitment to interdisciplinary and intercultural engagement with organizational and business leaders, educators, scholars, and policy makers seeking to enhance leadership, organizational functioning, and development around the globe.
Implementation activities from OLPD’s second-edition Writing Plan include the creation of three-person faculty teams to promote specific writing interventions across both majors, leading to additional revisions to core courses in the Business & Marketing Education and Human Resources Development majors. In addition, this plan incorporates the piloting and launch of a professional development program for graduate assistants who teach with writing.
