"Sic vive cum hominibus, tamquam deus videat; sic loquere cum deo, tamquam homines audiat" Seneka

CONFERENCE LEADERSHIP and the LIBERAL ARTS Friday, October 21, 2011 - Saturday, October 22, 2011. FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. Acknowledgements to: International Etienne Gilson Society
 
This Conference complements the School of Professional Studies’ adult degree completion program - Bachelor of Organizational Leadership and Administration (BLA).  The BLA program and the various Professional Studies (PS) courses the School of Professional Studies offers are primarily designed to serve the educational aims, the career interests, and intellectual enrichment of the adult, non-traditional students.  Leadership development encompasses many different areas, issues and topics, but ultimately, leadership begins within the character of a person: a person who makes the sincere choice to actualize his or her potentials in the best ways she or he can.  The School of Professional Studies welcomes inquiries from any person regarding our programs and educational opportunities.
