Leadership Fellows Keynote 2015 

"The leadership theories that the Leadership Fellows Program teaches are the basis for an ethical foundation in the real world. Right now, you are all leaders in the classroom, in your student organizations, on the field or court, or in your Greek organizations.  As you have been developing those skills over your four years, you are going to find that you will have an easier time transitioning to the working world because things like ethical behavior, understanding missions and purposes, and dedication to things you commit to."
