Director of Leadership StudiesDirector's Note

A new year – a time of beginning. And while beginning typically has one looking forward, new beginnings also provide rich opportunity for reflection. We've been doing quite a bit of both recently!

Leadership Studies Alumni & Friends

We invite you to stay connected with Leadership Studies! Join us for our first ever webinar for alumni and friends, local get-togethers in your area, and our signature alumni and friends event Spirit of Leadership. We also welcomed Becky (Sullivan) Fouard back to campus for the Leadership Alumni Speaker Series and were honored to recognize Nabeeha Kazi Hutchins as our 2013 Leader-in-Residence.
