Leadership dinners

In fall 2022, the Leadership Initiative launched a new program for graduate students to learn about different pathways to leadership in an intimate, informal setting. Each semester, Professor Morela Hernandez hosts two dinners in her home for 15 students and a faculty guest. Students hear how faculty found their voice, lessons learned, people who made a difference along the way, hard decisions, highs and lows, and anchors in their lives.

Upcoming dinners:

Past dinners included special guests:

  • Associate Dean Luke Shaefer, director of Poverty Solutions
  • Professor Shobita Parthasarathy, director of the Science, Technology, and Public Policy program.
  • Associate Dean John Ciorciari, director of the¬†International Policy Center and Weiser Diplomacy Center

 

Leadership dinners are a great way to connect with professors and other students outside of the classroom and learn about the personal and professional experiences that shaped their careers."
