Leadership Reckoning: Can Higher Education Develop the Leaders We Need?
Since its inception, higher education in the U.S. has claimed to develop leaders. This bold claim appears in college mission statements and mottos, and it is reinforced in recruiting materials and ad campaigns. But is this claim justified? In this webinar, panelists from The Doerr Institute for New Leaders at Rice will discuss higher education's social responsibility to develop the leaders we need and offer insights into how colleges and universities can begin to take leadership development seriously. The Doerr Institute’s new book, Leadership Reckoning, points the way, offering evidence-based approaches to leader development and measurable impacts found while developing emerging leaders at Rice. You don’t want to miss this opportunity to learn about the #LeadershipReckoning impacting higher education, including the new Carnegie classification in Leadership for Public Purpose.
