This fun and interactive orientation provides UNF students an opportunity to learn about the benefits of the inter-disciplinary Leadership Minor and the requirements of the program. The program provides students with credentials documenting the intentional study and practice of leadership as an undergraduate, providing an important "plus factor" in the job market and in applications to graduate school. Students will have the opportunity to ask clarifying questions during this one-hour, Q&A formatted session.

Dr. Frank Denton will reach his 50-year mark in journalism this August. Denton is the Editor of The Florida Times-Union and Vice President for Journalism at Morris Communications. Moderated by Dr. Paula Horvath, UNF Internship Coordinator and Instructor, the discussion will reveal how journalism, peppered with a strong sense of social responsibility, can "pull people into the public sphere" by asking provocative questions. This Leadership Speakers Bureau event will provide insightful examples that illustrate how leaders can demonstrate resilience in the face of contrasting views, strong criticisms, and conflicts of interests.

 

The Leadership Speakers Bureau event chose Outliers in fields of Leadership in order to highlight the UNF CommonREADS program and book, Outliers: The Story of Success by Malcolm GLadwell. The Leadership Speakers Bureau is a free event and open to the entire UNF community - students, faculty, staff and community friends. The purpose of the event is to offer attendees unique face-to-face experiences with leadership-centric speakers from esteemed backgrounds, motivating stories and illuminating question-and-answer segments about leadership.
