Leigh Fine returns to the School of Leadership Studies as a Visiting Assistant Professor.  While an undergraduate at Kansas State University, Leigh earned a minor in Leadership Studies.   He recently completed his doctorate in Sociology at The Ohio State University.  Leigh’s research interests include sexuality, gender, and education.

Leigh is excited to share his passion for leadership with K-State students through teaching Culture and Context in Leadership, the sophomore-level core course for the minor.  This course examines culture’s role in determining life experiences and how social identities such as gender, race, sexuality, class, religion, and ability affect how people interact with one another.
