This article: (a) describes the (Ignatian) Leadership Minor structure and curriculum for undergraduates at Creighton and (b) suggests how to embed principles of Ignatian leadership into undergraduate classrooms whether or not “leadership” is the explicit focus. First, I explain how the Leadership Minor was created specifically to embrace Ignatian Leadership and describe the required courses in terms of their learning objectives and related assignments. Second, I illustrate how principles of Ignatian leadership could be used in other undergraduate classrooms, offering additional units including Ignatian Charisms, the Examen, Downward Mobility/Living Simply, and Discernment that includes a “Personal Manifesto” based on Pedro Arrupe’s Fall in Love and Dean Brackley’s vocation to love and serve.
