The Citadel plans first leadership seminar for graduate students
The Citadel Graduate College and the Krause Center for Leadership and Ethics will host its first Graduate Leadership Symposium on July 22.
The one-day graduate student centered seminar will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Buyer Auditorium in Mark Clark Hall at The Citadel. It is free and open to graduate students at The Citadel and the College of Charleston.
“The theme for this seminar is ‘Lasting Leadership Through Effective Decision Making’ and is being held in response to the great graduate student participation we had at the Principled Leadership Symposium in the spring,” said Jeff Weart, director of the Krause Center.
“Our graduate students through the Graduate Student Government Association specifically requested additional leadership learning opportunities,” Weart said.
Allison Dean Love, executive director of the South Carolina Insurance News Service, a CGC graduate and a member of The Citadel’s Board of Visitors, will be one of two featured keynote speakers. The other is Nancy McGinley, superintendent of the Charleston County School District.
Participants will assess their own leadership skills and participate in group decision making exercises and case study reviews. The seminar aims to create a greater awareness of personal leadership style and skills, enhance understanding of group dynamics, decision making, and team building aspects as a leader and create opportunities to practice and improve communication skills.
