Ethical Design Leadership
Fall 2024
Taught By: Thomas Cusack
Section: C

CRN: 16022

Credits: 3

This course introduces students to current thinking about the leadership of design-driven projects and organizations, with special emphasis on the requirements of ethical leadership within complex systems, and on social justice in a global context. Combining classic and contemporary theoretical readings on organizational leadership and culture with an experiential, hands-on approach to the management of creative projects and people, the course invites students on a journey of self-discovery focused on personal strengths, challenges, and goals. Students will practice and internalize current approaches to the ethical leadership of creative organizations within complex contexts, gaining skills that will help prepare them to make a meaningful impact in their professional pursuits. Course topics include criteria of ethical analysis and evaluation; roles for resonant leadership and emotional intelligence within complex systems; leadership in competitive, cooperative, distributed, and social advocacy contexts; and organizational theory. In addition to core readings, class discussions will be informed by case studies, student presentations, and the perspectives of leading theorists and practitioners. Ethical Leadership for Design Professionals builds on the learning outcomes from the first year of the MS-SDM program, and provides context for the independent projects students develop in the concurrent Design Research Capstone Studio course.
