McDonough Leadership Conference
"Concrete Leadership: Bridging the Divide Between Theory and Practice"
April 10-11, 2015
Leadership has emerged in recent decades as a major field of study in higher education. Today, many colleges and universities offer exciting curricular and co-curricular programs in Leadership Studies – challenging their students to develop their leadership skills in preparation for a life of purpose and engagement. It is in this spirit of intellectual exploration, scholarship, self-reflection and personal leadership development that the McDonough Leadership Center annually hosts the McDonough Leadership Conference.
