This is an extraordinary community committed to growing the capacity of individuals and groups to lead change locally and globally. The energy and good will our students and colleagues consistently bring to this work is inspiring. I am excited by the opportunities we have, discover, and create - to connect students with experiences that help them develop and exercise leadership in their professional, community, social and personal lives.
