The mission of the Department of Leadership Studies is to enhance the ability of students from any academic background to perform effectively as principled leaders in their present or future leadership roles. The program utilizes interdisciplinary courses to engage students in comprehensive learning about leadership in applied contexts. At various points, the curriculum allows students to tailor the focus of their study toward individual and career interests.

The Department oversees all credit-bearing academic leadership courses (LDRS-prefix) and related programs, to include a Master of Science in Leadership, a Graduate Certificate in Leadership, a Graduate Certificate in Military Leadership, and an undergraduate Minor in Leadership Studies. The Department also directs the Sophomore Seminar in Principled Leadership, required of all cadets.
