Interested in learning how to effectively lead colleagues, students, even senior administrators? Curious to know how leadership differs from management? Intrigued by the premise that becoming a better leader means becoming a more self-actualized human being? Then, join us for this session. We'll spend 90 minutes exploring definitions and practices of leadership, as well as what makes leading in an academic setting frustrating and invigorating all at the same time. The session will be led by Kevin Eckert, Marilyn E. Demorest Faculty Advancement Award winner, 2016-17, and David Sachs, Director, Greater Baltimore Community Leadership Program. Lunch will be provided. Co-sponsored by the FDC and the ADVANCE program.

* Part of Provost's New Faculty Lunch series - all faculty are welcome to attend
