Course Description 
This course will cover important topics in Power and Politics in Academic Settings. Power, by definition, is the capacity to influence others.

Participants will explore their attitudes towards power and how much power they currently have. Participants will also consider what their sources of power are and how to gain the power they need to accomplish their goals personally and professionally.
