Leadership Series

The series includes presentations and workshops by UMMS faculty and other internationally-known speakers, addressing the development and application of leadership competencies that can be used whether or not you are in a leadership position, to begin to see oneself as a leader and to pursue that goal, or to improve or enhance current leadership skills.

Our expectation is that faculty will take advantage of these resources to develop their leadership skills and apply them to their career.  We believe that leadership competencies can be applied to many areas of our lives and careers, whether one is currently in a leadership position or aspiring to it.

We are proud to offer the following sessions as part of the 2016-2017 Leadership Series, and we invite you to attend any and all sessions:
